G (DJ is well faded, aged, and soiled; has moderate wear to top edge; former owner name and year on first page; text pages have aged slightly; text and illus. are clear.). Blue cloth, gilt letters on spine, light gray-green paper dust jacket, 250 text pp. followed by pages of 650 BW plates at rear. "A comprehensive study of Greek pins has so far been wanting. The first part of this book tells the story of Greek pins from the sub-Mycenaean to the Orientalizing period, studies their material, use, style, and chronology; the whole is based on literary evidence, finds in sanctuaries and tombs, and on representations. Some pages are dedicated to detailed study of the elements out of which pins and other ornaments of those periods are built, a world of forms hitherto neglected. ... In the second part Greek pins are set against a European and Asiatic background, another attempt by the author to break down the traditional barriers between classical and prehistoric archaeology." (dj) Uncommon. (Inventory #: 156183)
