"I have been using Hislop's Art Sales Index since it began in 1969, and I still find it the best of the price guides." --Christopher Wood, former director of Christie's For more than thirty years, "Art Sales Index, or" Hislop's, as it is known in the world of fine art, has been the essential guide that anyone buying art needs to make an informed purchase. Hislop's Official International Price Guide to Fine Art--the new portable edition and a first for Hislop's--covers international art auction sales of more than 80,000 works of original art from more than 25,000 of the most popular artists. This is an essential reference for the novice collector and anyone who wants to know art values, a handy tool for the experienced dealer, and a must for tax consultants. "As an art dealer for twenty-seven years, "Hislop's has been my primary source for price information. They were the first to do it right and they keep improving." --Gene Shannon, Shannon's Fine Art Auctioneers "Our staff depends on "Hislop's Art Sales Index for their research. They couldn't work without it." --Beth Biggs, Phillips Auction House "In effect it offers instant valuation of works of art. It is just great." --Jill Addleson, Durban Art Gallery, South Africa "A recommended resource for a busy library or individual researcher." --Holly Hatheway, Christie'sHouse of Collectibles Staff is the author of 'Hislop's Official International Price Guide to Fine Art ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780375722141 and ISBN 0375722149.
