-----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a lightly rubbed Very Good+ dustjacket, 296 pages, b&w and colour images throughout, ---lengthy List of Presidents and Members 1880-1979. Numerous full page illustrations, many full colour, spanning the period of the history. Since its founding in 1880 the Academy hs weathered periods of scandal, public apathy, battles with the National Gallery and internal dissent. But after its somewhat turbulent first hundred years it emerged intact, committed to the quality of art and the concerns of Canadian artists ---the ACADEMY encompasses painting, sculpture, architecture, printmaking, graphic design, industrial and interior design, textiles, ceramics, photography, film, yacht design -in effect potentially all areas of contemporary visual and environmental arts---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
