The Gargoyles of Notre Dame Book Description :

Most of the seven million people who visit the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris each year probably do not realize that the legendary gargoyles adorning this medieval masterpiece were not constructed until the nineteenth century.

These gargoyles, Camille contends, were not mere avatars of the Middle Ages, but rather fresh crea...
