Sometimes a teacher leaves an indelible imprint on the minds of his students. Professor John Shearman, of Harvard, Princeton, and the Courtauld Institute at the University of London, has been just such a teacher. In this long-awaited limited edition collection are sixty essays by scholars, distinguished in their own right, former students of the celebrated mentor of art and architecture of the Italian Renaissance and Baroque.

Contributors include Andrea Bayer, Metropolitan Museum of Art; Louisa Conner Bulman, Eton College; David Ekserdijian, editor-in-chief, Apollo Magazine; Meredith Gill, University of Notre Dame; and Thomas McGrath, Suffolk University.
