On the back cover:  Plaster fig leaf in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. This item was made specially for Queen Victoria’s visits to the museum — prior to her arrival, it was affixed to an appropriate spot on the front of the plaster copy of Michelangelo’s statue of David. The leaf now hangs on the back of the statue, accompanied by a sign that explains its history. According to the museum, the fig leaf is likely to have been made by the Anglo-Italian firm D. Brucciani & Company. Photo: S. Drew. (To see the back cover enlarged, click on the image.)
