THE DEFINITIVE WORK ON HIGH CROSSES

Bonn: 1992. Folio. Red cloth, titled in black. A fine set. Scarce. 375 L3 3E The great stone High Crosses of Ireland, often bearing the characteristic 'Celtic' ring, are the most monumental artistic achievement of the old Irish monasteries. For the first time, the crosses, numbering over 200, are comprehensively catalogued and described in a single volume, and illustrated in a second volume comprising 411 pages of black and white plates.

A third volume places a selection of the Irish figured panels beside relevant parallels in other media from elsewhere in Europe and beyond, placing the crosses in their broader artistic and religious context.
