Hardback, 1st UK edn. The remarkable story of a spectacular art robbery - the theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvre in Paris in 1911, and its aftermath. It was the brainchild of Marques de Valfierno who conceived a masterful plan. He needed the help of Yves Chaudron, the best art forger money could buy, and an Italian carpenter named Perugia who knew the Louvre inside out. At the heart of the ruse was a simple question: Why steal the Mona Lisa and sell it only to one larcenous connoisseur when, with a little effort, you can sell it to 6? The painting was not recovered for 2yrs! Illus., Notes and Sources + Index. 254pp. 8vo. V. lightly foxed top edge. Nr. F. in vg. dw. which has some creasing along top edge and tail of sp.
