The art of ancient Egypt by Gay Robins ( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the awesome grandeur of the great pyramids to the delicacy of a face etched on an amulet, the power of the art of ancient Egypt persists to this day. This beautifully illustrated book conducts us through the splendors of this world, great and small, and into the mysteries of its fascination in its day as well as in our own. What did art, and the architecture that housed it, mean to the ancient Egyptians? Why did they invest such vast wealth and effort in its production? These are the puzzles Gay Robins explores as she examines the objects of Egyptian art - the tombs and wall paintings, the sculpture and stelae, the coffins, funerary papyri, and amulets - from its first flowering in the Early Dynastic period to its final resurgence in the time of the Ptolemies

Five thousand years of glass by Hugh Tait ( Book )

"This book traces the history of glass from its origins in western Asia some 5,000 years ago, through the invention of glass-blowing around the first century B.C. to the introduction of mechanized processes and new styles in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It highlights the flourishing industries of ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt, the elegant vessels of the Islamic Near East, the superb mastery of Renaissance Venice, and the wide-ranging experiments of modern Europe and America." "A unique feature of the book is the series of photographic sequences specially taken in the studio of a modern glassmaker as he reconstructs ancient techniques; these are accompanied by a glossary of glass-making terms."--BOOK JACKET
