SURVIVAL, Hardback, Rare Book

Rorimer, James J, Survival: The Salvage and Protection of Art in War, New York: Abelard Press, 1950, pp285. No dustjacket.

Bought about 10 years ago from a bookshop formerly situated inside The Adelphi at Coleman Street, this is an easy-to-understand book any art history student will enjoy reading. It's about the monumental task a handful of those United States art historians of the MFA had to do to search and salvage many cultural objects in Europe during and after WW2.

I'd sold this book to a bidder at Yahoo! Auctions Singapore sometime last March. SOLD!
