From Library Journal
This scholarly two-volume catalog of the Metropolitan's European post-Medieval wall and furniture tapestries has been meticulously researched and produced. Each tapestry is presented individually with a description and a photograph (most are black-and-white) and information as applicable about its condition, the source of the design, the subject, the weaver and date, related tapestries, history of the piece, and previous exhibitions and publications. Because of its dry prose, specialized subject matter, and accumulation of details valuable to researchers, this work is an important acquisition only for museum and other specialized or research collections.
