I ordered this book from Amazon, but Amazon only lists one author. Amazon's author byline should say Roy King & Burke Davis (as it does on the image). The lithographs come from the Roy King collection. Burke Davis is a historian. This book was published in 1987, a reprint of a 1968 edition. My cover art has a white border around it, but it comes in black, too.
There are 60 lithographs and they seem to be arranged by time period. Each lithograph is 11 x 14 inches, allowing for wide margins. Each lithograph has a caption beneath it, providing the title of the piece and the date (the date is in tiny print).
When the book is open, the reader sees a page of text on the left-hand page. The text aligns with the lithograph displayed on the facing right-hand page. The text is interesting, discussing the historical events, places, or people depicted in the lithograph. The text added a great deal to my enjoyment and understanding of each lithograph.
I enjoy browsing through this book, imagining.
