A study of these pictorial bas-relief sculptures from Assyria, now housed in The Brooklyn Museum. "Dr. Samuel Paley ... has been able to add a great deal to our understanding and thus to our enjoyment of this art through his intimate and searching knowledge. Dr. Paley's study of ancient Assyrian relief is especially valuable in its examination of variations in the art. He adds to our appreciation of the reliefs and the ancient artists by showing us how minor disparities in dress and appearance are not just fortuitous but rather purposeful and significant details."
