Warning: Edition of 1992-4 - 477 pages, of 2003 - only 320 pages
on July 30, 2011
There is a very significant difference between two books titled Villas of Tuscany both by Carlo Cresti and Massimo Listri, of the same size (except thickness), and in almost identical dust jackets. The one with ISBN-10 0865651442 by Vendome Press or ISBN 0304344877 by Cassell Illustrated published in 1993-4 has 477 pages, and the other of 2003 with ISBN 0865652430 by Vendome Press or ISBN 186064998X by Tauris Parke Books has only 320 pages. Both are albums comprised of only excellent & mostly large photos (455 in color in the 477-p. ed.) and relatively short, but quite detailed descriptions of villas (54 in the 477-p. ed.) preceded by more analytic and also well illustrated text (on pp. 7-98 in the 477-p. ed.). Technical drawings or schematics are not included.
