„Dr. André Blum, the learned librarian of Baron Edmond de Rothschild and
an indefatigable student of engraving, has taken up the controversy afresh
in the book before us. But he has put the rein on purely national enthusiasm,
and made an attempt to estimate in a more scientific manner the claims of
France, Germany and the Netherlands to the production of many of the earliest
woodcuts, metalcuts and line-engravings . . .“ (From a review of the French
edition in the Burlington Magazine vol. 51 p. 251.)
