Original red cloth with gilt-stamped vignette and lettering on cover, gilt lettering on spine. Illustrated title page. A collection of material on the subject of the art of the goldsmith gathered during Redslob's fourteen years of publishing on the subject in magazines, including late Romanesque stone sculpting of portals and choir bars as well as contemporary work.

In separate chapters he writs about the Gothic, the Renaissance and the revival of ecclesiastic art and the development towards Baroque. Explanations of the plates, a list of plates and a bibliography conclude the written part, followed by sixty plates of ecclesiastic art, reproduced in lithography, from churches all across Germany.
