– Sold Out


In the book, The Arts, Van Loon starts with the Stone Age and ends in 1937. He covers two-dimensional and three-dimensional arts, architecture, the music of all ages, and then some.

What is enjoyable is that his style is more conversational than dry and pedantic. He gives you facts but in a way that is entertaining and informing. 

 The Arts is an excellent addition to your vintage Art and Painting collection or home library.


The Arts is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Please note the wear on the cover and the previous owner's handwritten on the inside page in pen.

Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more photos, ask.
