The Arundel and Pomfret Marbles
Available in Stock
The first major collection of classical antiquities in Britain were the sculptures and inscriptions collected in the early 17th century by Thomas Howard, Earl of Arundel, for his home in London. The major part of that collection is now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. This Ashmolean Handbook traces the history of the works before they came to Oxford and offers a stimulating introduction to the marbles and related artefacts through commentary and numerous colour photographs.
