Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Lichens From an Old Abbey: Being Historical Reminiscenses of the Monastery of Paisley, Its Abbot, and Its Royal and Other Benefactors

The old Vasari wonders much, in his wise simple fashion, over the sublime indifference to renown of artists earlier than he, - how, leaving their great works nameless, they have passed away, into the twilight, voicelessly, but for the still fair life breathed into the carved stone. Vasari fondly remembers how his master, Michael Angelo - because some ascribed the glory of the altar-piece, Pieta, to another - went, alone, to the Church at midnight, and carved, by a taper's light, his name on the marble drapery of the Virgin and the dead Christ.

Well for the history of Art if all had done likewise, thought Vasari as he wrote his famous lives, and paused in those ellipses where the work survived the workman, even in tradition most dim. And all who would add, however humbly, a stone to the cairn of Art, have thought, perhaps, with this old biographer, - have wondered and desired as he.
