New York: Harry N. Abrams, 1996. Hardcover. VG-/VG- (former owner's name/date on ffep - professor of classical art - light age toning to page margins, and a hint of shelf wear). Black boards, gilt lettering; glossy black DJ with color illus. and red lettering. 240 pp. 263 color, 14 bw plates. English-language catalog from the exhibition held at the Pushkin Museum and beyond. From Library Journal: "When Heinrich Schleimann excavated the site of ancient Troy, he discovered a treasure trove. Convinced that he had found the Troy of Helen and Priam, he named the treasure "Priam's Gold" and eventually gave it to the city of Berlin. At the end of World War II the gold disappeared, and it was assumed in the West that Russian troops had looted it. Most of the art treasures taken by Russian troops at the end of the war eventually turned up back in East German museums, but Priam's Gold was lost until 1994, when the Pushkin Museum admitted that it had been storing the gold in its basement since the end of the war (some of the items still had their German tags attached). This resulting catalog for the collection's first world tour (Greece, Turkey, and the United Kingdom) presents clear photographs of all 259 items in the Pushkin's holdings. Clear and concise essays by Pushkin curators Tolstikov and Treister put Schleimann, his work, and the artifacts into historical perspective. The pictures are pretty, but the text will be of greatest interest to scholars who have had no access to this historical collection for over 50 years. This is an important book for all art and archaeology collections." - Mary Morgan Smith, Northland P.L., Pittsburgh. (Inventory #: 19410)
