Comment: As riveting as a World War II thriller, The Forger's Spell is the true story of Johannes Vermeer and the small-time Dutch painter, Han van Meegeren, who dared to impersonate Vermeer centuries later. The con man's mark was Hermann Goering, one of the most reviled leaders of Nazi Germany and a fanatic collector of art. An exceptional copy; fine in an equally fine dw, now mylar-sleeved. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new. ; 349 pages; Physical desc. : 349 p. : ill. ; 24 cm. Includes bibliographical references (p. [295]-330) and index. Subjects: Meegeren, Han van, (1889-1947) --Vermeer, Johannes (1632-1675) --Forgeries --Art treasures in war --Netherlands --History --20th century --World War, 1939-1945 --Art and the war
