Maggie Campbell Pedersen

Used for 40,000 years, and prized for its beauty and versatility, ivory is a material that humans have been prepared to kill for. This comprehensive study begins by looking at conservation, and the range of animals – from mastodon to sperm whale – from which ivory has been derived. The author goes on to examine ivory as a material, describes techniques for identifying and caring for existing ivory pieces, and finally charts its world history, from prehistoric times to the present day.
