'Beazley treated the gems, rings and cameos listed in this volume as monuments deserving as much attention in description of detail, even to the forms of letters in inscriptions, as any other work of art'. First published in 1920, and now re-published here, this volume reproduces Beazley's dscriptions and commentary on the Lewes House Collection of intaglios and cameos sold to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The collection includes objects of Cretan, Mycenaean, Phoenician, Greek, Hellenistic, Etruscan, Roman and Renaissance origins all of which are illustrated with enlarged black and white photographs. Also includes updated references and many of Beazley's original margin notes.
