From Library Journal:

This guidebook to the collections of the British Museum is arranged in a unique and interesting manner: alphabetically rather than by collection or museum department. Caygill (Treasures of the British Museum) hopes that this arrangement will allow museum visitors to view the collections in new ways. Although the book is not exhaustive, it does provide a useful introduction to the variety of objects in the museum, as well as areas and subjects that one might never have discovered otherwise. In addition, those seeking objects on a particular subject or artifacts of a given civilization will benefit. Every entry is accompanied by a clear and detailed photograph of one object and by a page of well-researched and scholarly information. The volume ends with plans/layouts of the museum's galleries, appendixes of fascinating information (the names of the kings of Assyria, numismatic terms, and terms used in printmaking), and a full and useful index. This novel and intriguing approach to guidebooks for museums should be in the reference collections of college libraries. Martin Chasin, Adult Inst., Bridgeport, CT
