Pelican History of Art

As with the Buildings of England series, the Pelican History of Art belonged to one Nikolaus Pevsner, who led the project up until his death. The series, sold in boxed hardcovers, was a high-end, scholarly project written by experts in each field, and is well-esteemed. Like the Buildings, the Pelican History of Art was picked up by Yale University Press, and lives on.
