Full Description

4to. x + (2) + 216pp, 22 plates (some photo), 46 text ills. Contemporary quarter black morocco.

A good scholarly study of the Church of the Nativity at Bethlehem, considered by the authors to date from the early fourth century, with subsequent alterations in the Byzantine and Crusader periods. It usefully complements the large folio volume on the Church of Nativity by Wiliam Harvey, W.R.Lethaby and others, previously published by the Batsford firm in 1910.
