Reflecting upon an outstanding selection of antiquities from the Greek and Roman eras, this superbly illustrated examination provides an overview of the Logie Collection, covering nearly 250 different priceless objects. From high-quality and world-famous pottery from Classical Greece through a range of materials, including tomb-groups from the Early Bronze Age of Cypress and glass from Roman Britain, this record also discusses the place of these treasures in the contemporary world. With stone reliefs from Egypt, marble and terra cotta figurines and portraits, funerary inscriptions from Rome, and pottery from ancient Etruria, this investigation delves into a rare array of riches that has been accumulated for more than a half century.
