Seller: ancientgifts ✉️ (5,283) 100%, Location: Lummi Island, Washington, US, Ships to: WORLDWIDE, Item: 123984026639 Ancient Greek Roman Etruscan Minoan Crete Mycenaean Hellene Jewelry RARE Classic. Greek And Roman Jewellery by Reynold Higgins Second Edition. 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: 286 pages. Publisher: University of California; (1981). Dimensions: 9½ x 6¼ x 1 inch; 1½ pounds. A rare and out of print book which presents a detailed history of jewelry and craftsmanship through the Minoan, Mycenaean, Greek, Etruscan and Roman civilizations, including a full list of sites and bibliographical references. Considered the absolute classic of the genre. Incredibly well illustrated with both photos and line drawings of ancient jewelry and production techniques. Everything and anything you ever wanted to know about ancient jewelry. CONDITION: LIKE NEW. Unread hardcover w/dustjacket. University of California (1981) 286 pages. Pages are pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, unmutilated, tightly bound, seemingly unread. I'd guess the book was flipped through once or twice, then put away unread. Unblemished except for VERY slight shelfwear to dustjacket, AND there are faint, tiny, tan-colored age speckles (known as "foxing") to the top surface of closed page edges (visible only when book is closed, not to individual pages, only to the mass of closed page edges, sometimes referred to as the "page block"). Except for the faint age speckles to the top surface of the closed page edges, the overall condition of the book is otherwise consistent with what might otherwise pass as "new" from an open-shelf book store (such as Barnes & Noble, or B. Dalton) wherein patrons are permitted to browse open stock, and so otherwise "new" books often 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! #421b. PLEASE SEE IMAGES BELOW FOR JACKET DESCRIPTION(S) AND FOR PAGES OF PICTURES FROM INSIDE OF BOOK. PLEASE SEE PUBLISHER, PROFESSIONAL, AND READER REVIEWS BELOW. PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: Techniques of ancient jewelry making, gilding, etc. Sections include: ancient metallurgy; basic processing; decorative processes; joining and finishing. Studies of jewelry and techniques in: Greece and the Cyclades (3000-1700 BC); Middle Helladic Greece; Prepalatial Crete; Early Palatial Crete; Late Palatial Crete and Early Myceanean (1700-1450 BC); The Mycenean Empire (1450-1100 BC); Attica; The Peloponnese; Central and Northern Greece; The Islands and Eastern Greece; The Dark Ages (1100-900 BC); The Period of Oriental Influences (900-600 BC); Archaic and Classical Greece (600-300 BC); Early Etruscan (700-400 BC); Late Etruscan (400-250 BC); Hellenistic (330-27 BC); Roman (27 BC-400 AD). PROFESSIONAL REVIEW: REVIEW: The subject of this book is jewelry from the classical regions of the Early Bronze Age (circa. 2500 B.C.) to the Late Roman period (about A.D. 400). A full account of the technical methods of making jewelry is followed by a description, period by period, of the jewelry itself. It is an excellent general handbook by a preeminent scholar. The illustrations are simply remarkable. READER REVIEW: REVIEW: Simply everything you would ever need to know about ancient jewelry in the Classical world – the ancient Mediterranean. This is the source of detailed knowledge of the techniques and products of the ancient jeweler and metalsmith. Lavishly illustrated with wonderful photographs of rare jewelry – many examples not published elsewhere. Line drawings showing the various techniques used in the ancient world to produce their fabulously intricate jewelry. If you ever wondered, “how did they do that way back then”, you’ll find the answers here! SHIPPING & RETURNS/REFUNDS: We always ship books domestically (within the USA) via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). Most international orders cost an additional $9.99 to $37.99 for an insured shipment in a heavily padded mailer.

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 fully insured against loss, and our shipping rates include the cost of this coverage (through stamps.com, Shipsaver.com, the USPS, UPS, or Fed-Ex). International tracking is provided free by the USPS for certain countries, other countries are at additional cost. 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.

Please note that PayPal does NOT refund fees. Even if you “accidentally” purchase something and then cancel the purchase before it is shipped, PayPal will not refund their fees. So all refunds for any reason, without exception, do not include PayPal/eBay payment processing fees (typically between 3% and 5%) and shipping/insurance costs (if any). If you’re unhappy with PayPal and eBay’s “no fee refund” policy, and we are EXTREMELY unhappy, please voice your displeasure by contacting PayPal and/or eBay.

ABOUT US: 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. Please see our "ADDITIONAL TERMS OF SALE." Condition: LIKE NEW. Seemingly unread, but with faint Paperage-related cosmetic blemishes.
