This new catalogue on the Silk Road is published to accompany a major exhibition at the British Library. Containing high-quality reproductions of the exhibits and extended captions, this book will also consist of a substantial introduction by the editor, and essays by leading scholars presenting new research based on the great range of items displayed. There has never been an exhibition of the Aurel Stein collection, comprising manuscripts, paintings and artefacts in equal numbers and with emphasis on both religious and secular material and all languages and cultures. The catalogue will therefore be an essential purchase for all scholars of Central Asian and Silk Road history and art, and its extensive illustration and accessible texts will prove attractive to a much wider range of readers.
