Silver Vessels of the Sasanian Period: Volume One: Royal Imagery
by Harper, Prudence O. and Pieter Meyers
New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York / Princeton University Press, 1981. Hardcover. VG. Autumn orange stamped cloth, 256 pp., BW illus., 38 BW plates, 7 color plates. "The subject of this volume is one class of Sasanian silver vessels, namely those with representations of the king. The aesthetic quality of these works of art and the nature of the imagery explain the great importance of the vessels for the study of Sasanian culture and history. ... In this study the term 'central Sasanian' will be used to refer to those silver plates believed to have been manufactured during the period from A.D. 225 to 651 at the order or under the direction of the ruling members of the dynasty that controlled an area generally equivalent to that including present-day Iran, Iraq up to the Euphrates River, and parts of Armenia and Georgia in the Soviet Union." (intro) Although this book is clearly labeled as Volume One, no evidence suggests that subsequent volumes in a presumed set were published.
