Description
A former archaeologist at Colonial Williamsburg who has collected objects of dubious value on the shores of the Thames in London, in the lagoons of the Caribbean, and from the bottom of Martha Washington's well, Ivor NoŽl Hume seeks relics that can tell us something about a person or culture. Hume's fascinating history delves into the impulses that lead people to collect things, and describes the detective work that goes into establishing the probable facts about what are often underappreciated treasures. Along with 125 black and white photographs, the book also includes advice about hunting antiques online.
