Studies in Gems and Jewellery

This new series is in the same format as Studies in the History of Collections and Studies in Classical Archaeology and has the same publishers - The Classical Art Research Centre and The Beazley Archive in the University of Oxford and Archaeopress, the Oxford-based publisher of British Archaeological Reports. It is intended for studies in gems and jewellery from ancient to neo-classical, both monographs and the publication of contents of collections, and is inspired by the Beazley Archive's rich resources of gem impressions and casts, gathered first by Sir John Beazley himself, later by John Boardman, Martin Henig, and others.

Volume I
A Collection of Classical and Eastern Intaglios, Rings and Cameos

by C. Wagner and J. Boardman

This volume publishes Classical and Eastern intaglios, rings and cameos, a selection from a private collection formed between 1921 and about 1970. Almost all are published here for the first time but they include examples from important earlier collections and several inscribed. They range from 3rd-millennium BC cylinder seals of Mesopotamia, to Neo-classical engravings of the 19th century AD, and include prime specimens also of Greek, Etruscan, Roman and Sasanian glyptic.
