Selections from the Decorative Arts in the J. Paul Getty Museum Since: Paul Getty began to collect French decorative arts in the s and continued to do so until his death in This volume illustrates fifty of them.
For reasons of space, the list was replaced by short bio-bibliographical essays discussing who the individual Inklings were, their relationship with the group, and some guidance to their scholarly and creative interests as writers and the best or most interesting of their books.
