"This is a monumental work by Father Tylenda, S.J. and it is such a pity that it has been out of print for so many years now. There is nothing else like it. Each church is chronicled beginning with a floor plan, which takes the reader into a mini-tour of each church, position by position. The detail is astounding. The problem is, it has been out of print for over 15 years and now all you can find are outrageously priced copies." Number of Pages: 425. book. Bookseller Inventory # B1738
