Originally published in 1897, this book was written to provide both archaeologists and visitors with an accessible guide to Greek vases in the Fitzwilliam Museum: 'to publish and make accessible to archaeologists a record of the vases it contains, and to assist the visitor, and more especially the student in observing the history and technique of Greek vase-painting'. The text contains illustrations of every vase in the collection, except those that reproduce well-known and common types; these illustrations replace lengthy description and allow for easy identification of subject and style. This is a beautifully presented book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in the collections of the Fitzwilliam Museum, archaeology and Greek vases.
