Description - Treasures of the British Museum by Marjorie L. Caygill

The British Museum is the most magnificent treasure-house in the world. The wealth and range of its collections is unequalled by any other national museum. The Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon sculptures, Egyptian mummies, drawings by Botticelli and Michelangelo, Assyrian reliefs, the Lewis Chessmen and the Sutton Hoo treasure are all to be found here. "Treasures of the British Museum" reveals and delights the reader with the intriguing stories behind these treasures and many more. This timely new edition brings the story up to date, with chapters on important acquisitions made by the Museum in the last fifteen years, including the Warren Cup and the Queen of the Night. A beautiful redesign incorporating full colour photography throughout gives this classic volume a fresh new look.
