Format: Paperback
This is a reprint of a 1952 book of the same title by the same author. I bought the 1952 hardcover at a library sale, and this review is of that book. Maybe this paperback has a few more photos- look inside and determine for yourself if they are to your liking. The hardcover edition I have contains just a few decent color painting reproductions and a few black/white images. None of the images is very clear or sharp. 37 total illustrations, and pages xi-xvi detail each one with an accompanying explanation. This is a strength of the book.
This book IS useful as a way of gaining a reading knowledge of the artist's life and times. Many personal letters are reproduced, and these give a nice context to the times and people that Hicks worked among.
A far better choice than this book would be Carolyn Weekley's "Kingdoms of Edward Hicks". I have this one, and it is much better than the Ford book. It has sharper photos and seems to be cover most of the same territory as the Ford book, with some extra material (a detailed family tree) in addition (so far- not finished reading it yet).

The historical information was very good. There were very few pictures, disappointing. I would recommend it for a school library.
