This study explores the most recent developments in the tradition of collecting Greek vases, focusing on the buyer. It offers a historical account of the development of collecting from the early Renaissance to the middle of the 20th century, examines the emergence and growth of the market for Greek vases and the legal and economic developments of the changing market, and presents an empirical analysis of the post- war development of the vase collections in eight museums. The study presents a statistical analysis of vases offered on the antiquities market between 1954 and 1998, and looks at changes in acquisition policies and the present state of exhibitions in Greek vases. The book is distributed in the US by David Brown Book Company. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
