Enriched by over 500 illustrations, many of them by the author, a Professor then of antiquities at the University of California, Santa Barbara. A colorful illustrated but sunned dust jacket, not price-clipped, protected by Brodart sleeve, paper-backed. Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. ix [1], 2-501 pp. Member, I.O.B.A., C.B.A., and adherent to the highest ethical standards. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
