Sally M. Foster
International Specialized Book Service Incorporated, 1998 - Art - 287 pages
Described by Professor George Henderson as 'one of the most fascinating and beautiful monuments of pre-Romanesque art in Europe', the St Andrews Sarcophagus has long been overdue a definitive publication and international recognition. The book is the proceedings of a conference organized by the Society of Antiquarics of Scotland and Historic Scotland, with specially commissioned additional contributions, photographs-and illustrations.
