Jewelry Of The Ancient World by Renate Rosenthal Retold for young readers by Richard L. Currier. The Lerner Archaeology Series NOTE: We have 75,000 books in our library, almost 10,000 different titles. Odds are we have other copies of this same title in varying conditions, some less expensive, some better condition. We might also have different editions as well (some paperback, some hardcover, oftentimes international editions). If you don’t see what you want, please contact us and ask. We’re happy to send you a summary of the differing conditions and prices we may have for the same title. DESCRIPTION: Hardcover with dustjacket. Publisher: Lerner Publications (1975). Pages: 86. --> Introduces the jewelry of ancient times emphasizing that of the Holy Land, Greek, and Roman cultures particularly during the Bronze and Iron Ages. This series sends readers on a journey through time. Examining artifacts, early civilizations, and archaeological methods, these books show how people lived and worked thousands of years ago. 60 magnificent illustrations including many full-color plates. Although designed for the young reader (age 10 and up), this is a great introduction to the jewelry of the ancient world for any beginning enthusiast. A great starting point for anyone whether young or old with an interest in ancient jewelry. CONDITION: VERY GOOD EX-LIBRARY (but seemingly unread). Hardcover with dustjacket (encased in mylar). Lerner Publications (1975) 86 pages. Seems as if it were never read, at worst flipped through once or twice. Inside there is a library pocket on the first page (the front end paper), a library stamp on the next page, and an embossed seal on the next page. Inside the book the pages are (excepting the library identifiers described) otherwise pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, unmutilated, tightly bound, and seemingly unread (or merely flipped through once or twice). The dustjacket is (and probably always was) encased in a mylar sleeve, so it evidences only the most faint wear (almost imperceptible), the only detraction being the call tag on the dustjacket spine heel (as previously described). Beneath the dustjacket are printed (hardcover) boards which evidence nothing beyond very mild edge and corner shelfwear. The book is about as nice as one could imagine of an ex-library book, and were it not for the fact that it is an ex-library book, we'd describe it as "like new". Except for the library identifiers described hereinabove, the overall condition of the book is otherwise consistent with new stock from an open-shelf book store (such as Barnes & Noble, for instance) wherein patrons are permitted to browse open stock, and so otherwise "new" books often have become cosmetically blemished and/or show a little handling/shelf/browsing wear. Satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. In stock, ready to ship. No disappointments, no excuses. PROMPT SHIPPING! HEAVILY PADDED, DAMAGE-FREE PACKAGING! #134b. PLEASE SEE DESCRIPTIONS AND IMAGES BELOW FOR DETAILED REVIEWS AND FOR PAGES OF PICTURES FROM INSIDE OF BOOK. PLEASE SEE PUBLISHER, PROFESSIONAL, AND READER REVIEWS BELOW. PUBLISHER REVIEWS: REVIEW: The Lerner Archaeology Series - originally published in 1973 by Lerner Publications Company. This series is for approximately grade levels 4 & up (age 10 & up). The books are balanced with a generous amount of black/white and color photographs of artifacts, relics, and maps along with well written, informative text -- makes it "almost" as if you're on a real archaeological dig. If anything, a museum in a book. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: The “gold standard” in introductory material for young readers and students of archaeology. Wonderfully illustrated, easy to read, yet of substance. A marvelous start for anyone interested in the archaeology of jewelry. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: My 12 year old was riveted. For the first showed some real interest in ancient history. I really recommend this for anyone who is trying to interest a young one in the classical world. The color plates and illustrations were so intriguing I read the book for myself. I must admit to having learned a great deal about the ancient world and the fabrication and uses of jewelry through the ages. The things they just don’t teach MBA’s in college. They sure missed a fascinating subject here. I recommend the book not only for a young reader, but for a novice like myself who would be entertained (and educated) with some light reading material (and gorgeous pictures) pertaining to the world of ancient jewelry. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site) and free insurance coverage. A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
