'This newly revised and extended edition of Mr. Jackson's standard reference work, will prove of immense value to amateur collectors and investors, as well as to students and others with a more general interest in art.
It is a dictionary of some 9000 signatures and monograms upon which the author has spent more than twelve years in collection, verification and selection.
The core of the book lies in the alphabetical dictionary section where the artists, their schools of painting, their working dates and signatures are to be found. Equally important, however, is the book's unique visual index. Here you will find any signature which, if seen on a picture, might not suggest the name of its originator. Its location in the visual index will lead you back to the appropriate page in the dictionary and there to its originator.'
