"'In this lovely book, you find portraits of money lenders, artists, collectors of rare and beautiful objects, courtiers, grandees, marriageable young women and people in their old age... So many of the faces these faces are haunting in their seriousness and sense of life. These are images you take away in your mind long after the book is back on the shelf.' (Richard Edmonds, Birmingham Post)"
