This is a fairly nicely done catalogue of just what its title suggests. :) It is well-illustrated and the text is relatively informative. Museum catalogues can be an important source of information, though many lack good info. This is one of the better ones out there.

Not bad. Once again overly basic in it's content and almost travel brochure-like in it's real content. Nice photographs but not really exciting in it's actual informative value.
