From the dustjacket:

Animation Art, The Later Years, is a complete illustrated reference book written for both the novice and the most advanced collector of animation art. It contains examples of the different types of animation art and provides an understanding of how to value the art you might come across.

From the publisher:

Since the publication of Animation Art: The Early Years in the Spring of 1995, the appreciation for the accomplishments of animation artists has grown even more intense. The images strike a strong chord in us, awakening early memories and fantasies.

This new volume takes the reader from Disney's 1954 feature Lady and the Tramp up to the antics of The Simpsons. The book is illustrated with over 6500 photographs, most in color, of cels and other animation art that have been offered at auction, along with the prices they brought. In addition, thousands of other animation art auction offerings are listed, making this a comprehensive source for the collector.

Accompanying the wealth of illustrated art, the text provides historical sketches of the studios and other primary information about the artists. This is a necessary volume for all all who are interested in this wonderful art form.
