This famous book by a classical German sculptor Johann Gottfried Schadow (the figures on the Brandenburg Gate - among many other works) is next to impossible to find. It is based on the pioneering work by Greek Sculptor Polycletus. This is a reproduction of an 1883 translation of the German Atlas Zu Polyclet Oder Von Den Maassen Des Menschen Nach Dem Geschlechte Und Alter.
The original is a huge book, for this reproduction the 18 inch x 24 inch double pages have been both photographed for a full page view, and scanned in sections to provide the largest possible reproductions. In addition there are full page reproductions of an original reduced size 8.5 inch by 11 inch German edition.
