5.0 out of 5 stars Hall's great! 23 April 2014
By Lou Lou - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Hall's book is great for showing the continuum of imagery and ideas that run through and from Roman art and religion--polytheistic to monotheistic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource;kudos to Amazon for access to diverse price points and to Texas Exile service. 31 Mar 2014
By Nancy Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Everything I anticipated after locating this resource in the Bibliography of Robert M. Place's excellent survey on the Tarot. The
book arrived earlier than expected from Texas Exile meticulously wrapped with a charming hand-written note recommending other publications and its condition was exactly as profiled...an exceptional bargain!
