Art-Lovers Guide to the Exposition - Sheldon Cheney

This book described the artwork of the Panama-Pacific Exposition of 1915 in San Francisco. This book was written for people who are not connoisseurs of art. The author states: "Purely destructive criticism and ridicule have been carefully avoided," unfortunately the author is very opinionated about the artwork, using an approach similiar to "The City of Domes." This is my 55th Project Guttenberg title.
