In the history of Western culture we find lists of saints, rosters of soldiers, catalogues of grotesque creatures or medicinal plants, and hordes of treasure. The poetics of lists can be found from Homer to Joyce, from the treasures of Gothic cathedrals to the fantastic landscapes of Bosch and cabinets of curiosities, until we get to Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst in the 20th century. This illustrated essay is accompanied by a literary anthology and a wide selection of works of art illustrating the texts presented. Condition: dust-jacket slightly sunned to rear panel, otherwise very good
