The Metropolitan Museum of Art Guide to the Collections: Prints
A. Hyatt Mayor (1964)
This title is out of print.

Mayor provides a succinct, but comprehensive, account of printmaking and its development, from Medieval woodcut to lithography, with each method exemplified by samples from the Museum's collections. By providing detailed description of printing techniques as they progress, with corresponding examples, this manual serves a twofold purpose: it gives the history of the medium and displays the Met's superb collection of prints from Dürer to Daumier and beyond.
