About this title


A large and comprehensive account of gem engraving from the Early Bronze Age through to the Hellenistic period. This new expanded edition has been re-issued thirty years after its first publication and includes an Epilogue, 1970-2000, taking account of three decades of research, an additional select bibliography and more illustrations. John Boardman discusses the history of engraving, the subject matter, materials and techniques and their relationship with other artistic media accompanied by black and white drawings, photographs of gem impressions and colour photographs of many of the originals.
