Kirwan, Laurence; T. Hägg, L. Török, & D.A. Welsby, eds.  Studies on the history of late antique and Christian Nubia. Hampshire: Ashgate / Variorum, 2002. 8vo (25 cm, 9.875"). Various pagination; illus.
$100.00

From the preface: "Sir Laurence Kirwan (1907–1999) was a man of several distinguished careers, public as well as scholarly; but it seems safe to state that Nubia, where he was active as a field archaeologist in his youth (1929–39) and on whose history he published throughout his life, remained closest to his heart. Sadly, he did not live to see the present collection of papers in print; but he was happy to know that it was on its way, and though blindness prevented him from playing an active role in assembling its parts, the selection and the omissions have his approval . . . Characteristically, he declined to write the more personal account of his own career in Nubiology (before the word was coined) that we suggested — a career that reached from Emery and Griffith to Adams and Michalowski (and beyond)."

Publisher's blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine and front board; extremities lightly bumped. Interior is clean.  (40304)   Please RESHELVE This.
