This little book of 1156 locations (100 pages app.) was first published in 1900. The original has pictures in it, the Kindle version does not. Which means you'll have to find the picture online, this is easy to do, you only have to type the name of the work of art into your search engine.

The contents of this book are:

INTRODUCTION

I. ON MICHELANGELO'S CHARACTER AS AN ARTIST
II. ON BOOKS OF REFERENCE
III. HISTORICAL DIRECTORY OF THE WORKS OF ART IN THIS COLLECTION
IV. COLLATERAL READINGS FROM LITERATURE
V. OUTLINE TABLE OF THE PRINCIPAL EVENTS IN MICHELANGELO'S LIFE
VI. SOME OF MICHELANGELO'S FAMOUS ITALIAN CONTEMPORARIES
I. MADONNA AND CHILD
II. DAVID
III. CUPID
IV. MOSES
V. THE HOLY FAMILY
VI. THE PIETÀ
VII. CHRIST TRIUMPHANT
VIII. THE CREATION OF MAN
IX. JEREMIAH
X. DANIEL
XI. THE DELPHIC SIBYL
XII. THE CUMÆAN SIBYL
XIII. LORENZO DE' MEDICI
XIV. TOMB OF GIULIANO DE' MEDICI
XV. CENTRAL FIGURES FROM THE LAST JUDGMENT
XVI. PORTRAIT OF MICHELANGELO

This book gives information about Michelangelo and his life, some of his contempories, and 15 of his most famous works. The book gives details about what is depicted in the picture; for example in the chapter on the Delphic Sybil in the Sistene Chapel in Rome the author explains what sybils were ('They were women of ancient times [Ancient Greece] supposed to have supernatural gifts of foretelling the future.'), where they lived, when they lived, and how it is possible that five of them are represented in a Chistian Chapel. There are also some instructions on how to look at the picture.

The very low price for this book is accounted for by the fact that it has no illustrations (very few). Nice narrative but lean on pictures. Don`t waste your time or money.

This book would be great if there were actually pictures in it. It's only good to take along with you to a museum to read through while you were looking at the paintings, that is if the museum had them all. Good thing it was free.

I am an indian and a Hindu with little understanding of Christianity and Rome hence it was an eye opener for a beginner like me who was very inquisitive about Michelangelo...who he was and why he is so appreciated
