Kevin Herbert’s lively, accurate account begins with a history of the collections of ancient art at Bowdoin; introductions to each of the chapters on the various classes of artifact continue to guide and instruct the reader. After treating the Mesopotamian and Egyptian collections, the author discusses the Greek, Cypriot, Roman, and Byzantine objects. Each item is described; dated when possible; dimensions are given; and bibliographies are included in each chapter. The book offers the first full treatment of Bowdoin’s Edward Perry Warren Collection of Greek and Roman Art, as well as of the Haskell and Estes Collections—all of major importance.
