Catalogue of the Byzantine and Early Mediaeval Antiquities in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection, 2: Jewelry, Enamels, and Art of the Migration Period

With an Addendum

Edited by Marvin C. Ross

Marvin Ross’s groundbreaking catalogue of jewelry in the Byzantine Collection at Dumbarton Oaks was first published in 1965. The volume has long been out of print, but its enormous popularity and enduring status led to a reprint, this time with color photographs. Accompanying the reprint edition is an addendum by Susan Boyd and Stephen Zwirn with twenty-two new objects acquired by the Dumbarton Oaks Collection between 1962 and 1999.
