Format: Paperback
As a companion volume to Harter's Women: A Pictorial Archive from Nineteenth-Century Sources (Dover Pictorial Archive), and as a collection that stands on its own merits, this oversize Dover collection succeeds remarkably. The men in these sharply reproduced engravings come from all eras of history and all corners of the world. Barbarian warriors stride to victory; a baseball player "tags" an opponent in the very nick of time; two Colonial gentlemen do a square dance with their ladies; cowboys work cattle; a gladiator stands in triumph over his fallen foes; a lecturer addresses a crowd of working men; a violinist bows his strings; soldiers stand sentry; a trio of Chinese enjoy their opium pipes; dervishes whirl; athletes bound over hurdles; an early anesthesiologist practices his profession with a peculiar drum-shaped apparatus; skiers fly down snowy slopes; a young gentleman woos his reluctant belle; two seamen struggle with their ship's wheel as rain falls almost horizontally; and many more pose, work, or play. There are foreigners ranging from Spanish bullfighters to primitive tribesmen, reproductions of statuary, advertisements both obvious and not so much. Mr. Harter should add a volume of "Children" to this duo; I'm sure he'd do an equally fine job.

Format: Paperback
Wonderful selection of period illustrations. Paper quality is nice and opaque, but a BIT too porous; reproduction with Streamline is more difficult. Not enough nudes (only a few statues) compared to the book "Women".

This book is great for collage work. The pictures are perfect for a vintage touch to artwork. There is a variety of pictures in different sizes and shapes.

The pictures in this book are too diverse and particular. One would like a wide array of pictures of men in not too defined circumstances to use elsewhere - but most of the men in this book are in settings with a contxt that cannot be dropped from the picture.

the other Dover Pictorial Archive came with discs, which made it easy to import into my computer for design projects.
due to the outstanding price i can understand why a disc was not included, so i was ready to scan the images i liked, but the paper they used for the book is low quality, the printing inks bleed and the true lines were lost, the images are some what blotchy. The book are great if your ready to rebuild the images in vector, but the images as is will not match up with the crisp edges of the fonts you use while designing. over all i'm happy because they were priced so low and i always re-build Dover work in illustrator, but if your looking to cut and past scanned images into photoshop, the Dover are will look soft.
