Title: Silver-Stained Roundels and Unipartite Panels before the French Revolution. Flanders, Vol. 2: The Provinces of East and West Flanders
Description: Turnhout, Brepols, 2011. 31,5 x 23 cm, xiv, 631 pp, 300 illustrations in b/w, 900 illustrations in colour. Hardback. The former County of Flanders, with the cities of Bruges and Ghent, must once have displayed huge quantities of stained glass, which for the most part have been lost or relocated. The causes and reasons for this loss include natural calamities, fires, deliberate destruction and neglect. Most of the surviving roundels are now in foreign collections: on the continent; in Great Britain; or in the United States of America. It is worthy of note that great efforts have been made in the USA and Great Britain to compile and publish checklists of silver-stained roundels and other small panels, originating from the Low Countries, whilst here, where they were produced, this series is the first genuine overview that has ever been published.
