Theophile Roller
Les catacombes de Rome. Histoire de l’art et des croyances religieuses pendant les premiers siècles du Christianisme.

Paris, A. Morel, 1881. 2 vols. in-folio. XXXVI, 304, 391 pp. text and hundreds of superb ills. on 100 plts. in heliogravure. Orig. half maroon morocco, marginal foxing throughout.



One of the most beautifully illustrated and extensive works on the subject of the first artistic representations of Christians. It famously inspired Le Corbusier, who bought a copy sometime between 1912 and 1916, in some of his subterranean designs.
