One of the first official discoveries of art of the Upper Paleolithic in Portugal was found in 1963 at the Herdade da Sala (Montemor-o-Novo), Alentejo. This, and additional recent discoveries of this kind represent the majority of examples in this volume. The examples range from megaliths, cave paintings, engravings, jewelry, architecture, and statues found throughout the geographical regions of Portugal. A significant work, which when complete will consist of six volumes, is being published in Lisbon by the Círculo de Leitores, a Portuguese publisher which functions essentially as a book club, and does not distribute its books outside of Portugal, or even within Portugal through the book trade. As in the past with books from this publisher, it occurred to us that institutions, and even some private individuals, might be interested in these books and not have any way to obtain them.

Orders for the complete six-volume collection will cost $85.00 per volume.
