English term or phrase: survey book
The power of this work makes its omission from the survey books on the art work of the period all the more astounding.

Spanish translation:see below
Explanation:
A survey art book is composed of explanations and typical examples or highlights of the art of an era, without pretending to be all inclusive. Think of "survey" courses in English or some other subject, where the principal people, movements, works, etc., sare studied, but not in the detail that an advanced student would want.
Survey books are really ANTHOLOGIES, and I would translate it that way--antologías.
You are listening to an old! professor.
Suerte.

libros de investigación bibliográfica


Explanation:
Me parece que son libros en los que se analizan los libros publicados sobre un tema, en este caso libros que tratan los trabajos artísticos de dicho período. También se podría decir "reseñas bibliográficas".
