This superbly produced volume, printed on glossy paper and filled with b&w and color images of excellent quality, offers a thorough overview of current scholarship on the exceptional city of Famagusta, Cyprus. Written by an international group of historians and archaeologists, the essays describe the authors' researches regarding the city's Armenian, Byzantine, and western Gothic churches; the heraldic shields and fortifications of the Venetians; the source of the city's wealth as a port and source of trade in textiles; and descriptions and analysis of the sculpture, wall painting, and the dating and chronology of the city's most famous church, the Gothic Cathedral of St Nicholas. The final group of essays are devoted to the urgent issue of conservation of the city's medieval and renaissance architecture. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
