This first edition presents stories of the artists from the Gothic and Renaissance periods and the European Academies. It has 34 lessons and 17 fine art prints. Fine art prints are a separate component to the book and necessary for presenting the lessons. Replacement of missing fine art prints is no longer an available option so check with the seller to make sure their book has them. You may want to look at a second (2008) or third editions (2013) to avoid this issue.
