University Park and London: The College Art Association of America / The Pennsylvania State University Press, 1986. Hardcover. G+ (Binding has fading along spine and edges of back cover; interior is quite clean.). Blue cloth, gilt letters on spine & front cover, 87 text pp. plus pages of 114 BW plates at rear. "Style and subject matter have always been treated separately, as have pagan and Christian topics, though these clearly have a bearing on one another. Similarly, the issue of the christian imagery of the catacomb has been governed by the question of the existence and availability of illustrated manuscripts in Early Christian times; admittedly this is a question for which the catacomb provides essential evidence, though it is not the only problem, nor even the major problem connected with the imagery of the catacomb. It would seem, therefore, that the Via Latina catacomb has suffered a kind of scholarly dismemberment, and that it is revealed today only in curious and partial views. The present study is an attempt to put some of the pieces back together again." (preface). (Inventory #: 156147)
