KIRKUS REVIEW

The Museum's superb collection is shown to advantage here in a lucid, highly informed text by three curators (Mr. Katz was recently appointed director of the Jewish Museum of New York City) and photographs (150 black-and-white, 64 color) by David Harris. Perhaps the foremost repository of Biblical treasures--including the Dead Sea Scrolls--the museum also houses such contemporary notables as Picasso, Henry Moore, Calder. Catalogue and list of plates. The anatomy of an important collection.
