1 Hoving, Thomas King of the Confessors
New York Simon and Schuster 1981 0671433881 / 9780671433888 Soft Cover Very Good No Jacket 
A clean, tight copy with an inscription to front endpaper and a touch of foxing to top edge else unmarked. 365 pages. 20 illustrations. In the spring of 1955, after eight centuries of silence, a mysterious work of art, one of the most beautiful and enigmatic ever created in world history, suddenly turned up in the hands of a strange and secretive collector. At the very moment the collector discreetly announced he might sell the object, there began a quiet, bitter contest for possession among some of the most powerful art museums. Those that joined the struggle to gain possession and deeper knowledge realised that the work was incomparable in importance and value, yet the object turned out to have a profound effect on the lives of those who came into contact with it - the object was the Bury St Edmunds Cross, an ivory created in the 12th century, the story is true - it is called the King of the Confessors.
