Red paper wraps, 175 text pp. followed by pages. with 68 BW figures and illustrations at rear. On spine: Adams: Orientalizing Limestone Sculpture. Based on the author's dissertation. "The purpose of my study was to investigate the origins and early development of limestone sculpture in Greece, and to discover what its relationship was to the development of monumental sculpture there. ... The original intention was to focus the study on technical aspects of the sculptures. But it soon became apparent that proper understanding of the technique was impossible until the dating of many of the sculptures has been re-examined in the light of the last decades' discoveries in the field of minor arts, both Greek and oriental. This re-assessment forms the bult of the work, and has at the same time thrown light on the reconstruction of some of the architectural sculptures." (preface). (Inventory #: 155860)
