Examining cultural and artistic cross-pollination between Europe, Africa, Asia and South America that resulted from the extensive worldwide explorations undertaken by the Portuguese during the Age of Discovery, this three-volume set in paperbound includes the show's main exhibition catalogue -- a volume also offered by Worldwide in a hardcover trade edition (see Worldwide 31483) -- along with a supplemental volume of essays and a companion reference catalogue that features lengthy descriptive entries for the exhibited works. Because the three-volume set is less expensive than the two supplemental volumes if purchased individually, Worldwide is offering the companion volumes only as part of this set.
