Large octavo, navy blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 235 pp. Near-Fine, with former-owner stamp, in a Near-Fine dust jacket with slight wear to edges. This fascinating record in words and pictures begins with the earliest known places of worship, such as Stonehenge and Lascaux, and comes down to the present day, with modern churches by Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright, and the Meditation Room at the UnitedNations in New York...Paraelles are drawn among the various religions as well as the styles of architecture, and the cultural achievements of the past are related to the present. The accompanying photographs show not only the great masterpieces...but also many less well-known examples.
