4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Preston S. Page on April 16, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Most of the famous portraits are here, weighted heavily toward Penn's early career. I was hoping for a larger, more comprehensive treatise with better printing, like "Small Trades", but the material here is very good.
