I agree with Robert Kibler. (I'm sure the Redmond biography will be the best
of the lot.)  I like the Stock, but the Carpenter is full of information and
discusses the aesthetics more thoroughly than the others.  The Ackroyd has
wonderful pictures, some of which I've never seen elsewhere, but his facts
are not that reliable.
Best regards,
