NOTE: We have 75,000 books in our library, almost 10,000 different titles. Odds are we have other copies of this same title in varying conditions, some less expensive, some better condition. We might also have different editions as well (some paperback, some hardcover, oftentimes international editions). If you don’t see what you want, please contact us and ask. We’re happy to send you a summary of the differing conditions and prices we may have for the same title. DESCRIPTION: Softcover: 176 pages. Publisher: Harper & Row Publishers; (1975). Intended as a guide to pilgrimages to the holy city of Rome for tourists in the Special Holy Year of 1975 (a special occurrence every quarter century). Intended as a guide to the monuments, sculpture, art, and architecture of Ancient through Medieval Rome, this “guidebook” is stuffed with hundreds of full color photographs of all the major historical and archaeological sites of the ancient city. Mosaics, monuments, sculpture, museums, cathedrals, pagan temples, catacombs, sarcophagi, the Vatican, stadiums and colosseums, all of the major attractions are described and depicted in wonderful color photography. If you’re interested in a “virtual tour” of the ancient capital of the Roman Empire and the Holy Roman Church, this is a remarkable publication. Though published in Italy, it is in English. It was printed on very stiff, heavy stock so the cover keeps wanting to fall off of the bound pages. It’s not a very flexible binding, an attribute quite common to heavy, quality European souvenir printings. Otherwise it is in very nice condition. Includes a fold-out map of the city. CONDITION: LIKE NEW. Unread. The book is unblemished except for a tiny bit of shelf wear to the covers, including a little bit of chipping to the top edge of the back cover. It's absolutely unread, just a little shopworn consequence of sitting on a book store shelf for several decades. Pages are pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, unmutilated, tightly bound, unambiguously unread. PLEASE SEE IMAGES BELOW FOR SAMPLE PAGES FROM INSIDE OF BOOK. PLEASE SEE PUBLISHER, PROFESSIONAL, AND READER REVIEWS BELOW. PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: Illustrated in full color. Listed by the Central Committee for Holy Year presented by His Eminence Cardinal Ugo Poletti, Vicar of His Holiness, Pope Paul VI. Here is the ideal guide for the Holy Year pilgrim. It explains the ecumenical significance of this Jubilee Year. It describes the ecclesiastical meaning of the visitor’s presence in the city consecrated by the apostles Peter and Paul. It urges the visitor to witness his faith before the Vicar of Christ. This guide introduces the pilgrim to the city of faith, furnishing an ideal key for visits to the most important places and monuments in the Christian World. “The Pilgrim’s Guide to Rome” takes the pilgrim on a discovery of a city of silence and prayer. In our confused age, these pages recommend and illustrate places of meditation and inner peace so that each pilgrim may enter the Holy Door with a renewed soul. In addition this reverent guide will be a lovely souvenir for each pilgrim with its extra pages for stamps, pictures, and the direct witness of new Christian friendships. Together with the guide, each pilgrim is given a parchment reproduction of a precious fourteenth century miniature of the Sienese School for the personal and Apostolic Benediction, and a large street map of Rome in color which shows the location of all the holy places, museums, galleries, and other points of interest. PROFESSIONAL REVIEW: REVIEW: Holy Year Edition. Guide for the Holy Year pilgrim to the city of Rome. It explains the significance of the Jubilee Year and introduces the city of faith, highlighting important places and monuments of the Christian world. Profusely illustrated with color and black and white photos and illustrations. Index. READER REVIEW: REVIEW: A spectacular photographic guide to the “eternal city”. A gorgeous publication. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees ““ even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
