Catalogue of Greek Terracottas in the British Museum, Volume III
by Reyonld Higgins and Lucilla Burn (British Museum, 2001)
Indispensable catalogue of 1,000 of the British Museum’s extensive collection of ancient Greek terracottas. While it serves as a chronological sequel to volumes I and II (now out of print and difficult to find), it is complete in itself as a comprehensive survey of Hellenistic terracottas from most areas of the Mediterranean. It groups the figures by seven distinct geographic areas and discusses the history and general characteristics of each area. Black and white plates accompany every example, and color plates offer a representative selection of the range of clays found in the terracottas published here. One copy only! New condition. Now out of print and originally published at 145 British Pounds Sterling!
