Notes Fine book in a fine, unclipped dust jacket, the publisher's shrink wrap is still with the book but has been opened at some time. There are a few tiny flecks of white on front cover of the book, that in no way detracts from this beautiful book. Translated into English from the French by Marilyn Garner, book includes 191 illustrations, including 108 plates in full color, notes, bibliography, and glossary. In 1991, a professional diver named Henri Cosquer discovered a wealth of prehistoric art in a cave near Marseilles, France. Cosquer is now one of the most thoroughly and firmly dated Paleolithic caves in the world. ; Color Photographs; 12 x 10.5 inches; 200 pages
