KIRKUS REVIEW

A souvenir volume on the city of Rome with an introduction by Bishop Sheen, text by H.V. Morton and photographs by Yousuf Karsh. The combination is unbeatable to insure a wide sale. The material is divided into four sections, The Rome of the Caesars (Appian Way, Roman Forum), The Rome of the Apostles (titular churches), The Rome of the Pilgrims (the seven great churches and the catacombs) and The Rome of Today (the Gregorian, the Swiss Guard, the Vatican Gardens, a papal audience in St. Peter's). The volume is handsome, the photographs excellent and the text interesting, brief and simple. A Catholic Book Club selection.
