New York, New York: Thames and Hudson, 1988. Hardcover. G (Binding has changed color around edges; has light aging overall; edges of book block have some foxing; page surfaces with text and illus. are generally clean.). Gray cloth, gilt letters on spine, gilt decoration on front cover, gray & illus. dust jacket, 288 pp., 305 BW illus., 56 plans and drawings. The author "presents here the first authoritative account of the genesis and development of the design, of the church's building, and of the principal subsequent changes. His descriptions bring alive the achievement of an unprecedentedly ambitious project in a way that has never before been attempted for a structure for which there are no drawings, building accounts or similar records. He looks also, more briefly, at the church's predecessors and, finally, at its use as a setting for the liturgy and for imperial ceremonial, and at its character and influence, both in the Byzantine era and beyond."
