Summary

Illustrated catalogue of crafts exhibition and collection of papers of the Ninth Annual Conference of the Center for Medieval and Early Renaissance Studies, SUNY Binghamton, May 1975.

“A descriptive entry and an illustration—seven in excellent color reproductions—of each of the more than 125 objects in various media that were included in the show … The five specialists’ papers that precede the catalogue offer a variety of perspectives on the artistic relationships between Islam and the Medieval West … The book constitutes a handbook of use both to the student and the specialist. Recommended.” — CHOICE
