This historic 1933 publication documents the important collection of Egyptian, Greek and Italian pottery assembled in the early years of what is now the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. This collection, brought together in part for teaching purposes, contains a wide range of classic pottery types and is illustrative of the development of pottery over time in these Mediterranean cultures. The volume consists of a portfolio containing loose, unbound plates and explanatory text with catalogue, as is the standard for the CVA.

Richard de Puma is chairman of the Art History Department at the University of Iowa and the author of Fascicule 6 of the Getty Museum's Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum series.
