500 pp "Pedro de Palol and Max Hirmer have produced what is certainly the definitive survey of early medieval Spanish art. In his text, which is profusely illustrated with plans and diagrams, Professor de Palol analyses the artistic developments while setting them clearly in their historical context. Professor Hirmer's magnificent series of plates covers a vast range of architecture, frescoes, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, ivory-carving, and gold and silver work. There are detailed notes on the plates, and genealogical tables and maps. As a work of reference, this book is indispensable; as a collection of superb photographs.”
