3-0 out of 5 stars Good book not worth todays asking price !
This is a great book as fare as the color reproductions. John William Godward has received very little recognition until the past few years and this book has beautiful repersentations of a good deal of his paintings. However, I cannot speak to the quality of the text, because I did not have the chance to read it.

I almost bought this book at Barns and Knoble six years ago and didn't because of the $85.00 cover price. Now I wish that I had. The two sellers of this now out of print book are asking just under a thousand and just over a thousand for a USED book!!! What planet are these guys from?

To sum it up nice book, but not worth anything close to the asking price. If you do buy it you have more money than common sense.

5-0 out of 5 stars don't miss it
What a remarkable book this is. A comprehensive book about one of the greatest masters of 19th century-John William Godward.

The book contains a great collection of his works as high quality pictures as well as a comprehensive biography from his grandfather to the life of his family after his death in details. The book is well published and written.

Your library misses it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential!
A well researched, beautiful book.Essential for anyone interested in the works of Godward.

4-0 out of 5 stars The ravishing art is worth the price
The text of this book manages to be both dull and embarrassingly amateurish.But the paintings?They are spectacular.The book is worth owning even at this price simply for the art.It's high time Godward wasrecognized and appreciated, and this book will no doubt contribute much tohis wider appeal.

4-0 out of 5 stars A most fascination and plethoric capturing of the Man.
The Art of Squire Godward most endearing and someof the most lovely andwell captured depictations of feminine beauty one able ever encountre.The delicacy of his renderings of the female figre, ripe breasts and firmthighs vissable just beneath their thin gauze-like dresses, reveals adecidedly observant Artist able rendre the beauty of God`s creation, Hisapotheosis, in its most idealised form. ...

"Excerpt from the book..."


Several of us had remained rather late that evening about the cheerful
fire in front of my hut,--for the nights were still chilly, although it
was May, and the dreadful winter passed,--discussing the improved
condition of our troops
