London: The Pindar Press, 1994. Hardcover. G (Has light aging overall; dj has light edgewear and several bumped corners; former owner name and year on first page; pages are tanning lightly; text and illus. are clear.). Black cloth, gilt letters on spine, black dust jacket, 532 pp., many BW illus., 5 fold-outs in book center. A collection of 16 scholarly essays penned by British classical architecture historian and archaeologist John Ward-Perkins (1912-1981). "What the papers here published have in common is that every one is a major statement on its subject. Ward-Perkins was a master of the art of identifying the broaders issues and trends ... Where other writers with a more theoretical bent have tended towards orver-rigid classification and somewhat facile generalisation, Ward-Perkins, always primarily an empiricist, was admirably subtle and flexible in his approach. His paper on the Roman West and Parthian East, for instance, is a fine example of his sophisticated reading of large and complex problems." (preface, Roger Ling). (Inventory #: 156089)
