143pp of text Five Lectures Delivered at the Metroplitan Museum of Art, February and March 1930. "The mysterious and enigmatic Irish crosses form the subject of this fascinating volume by Arthur Kingsley Porter. With the aid of nearly three hundred illustrations he discusses the problems presented by the crosses, and shows the extraordinary and almost embarrassing wealth of material which they present. He brings out the fact that the Irish are perhaps the oldest of all European races, still racially what they have been since the La Tene period, and that what really separates the history of Ireland into two periods is not any foreign conquest by the arrival of Christianity." good, green cloth w/edgewear (EX-LIB w/usual markings).
