Stierlin is a historian of architecture and ancient civilizations who has published numerous works on the art of the pharoahs. His authoritative text combines with excellent color photos and elegant page design to present the incredible jewelry and masks found in the tombs of Tutankhamun (in the Valley of the Kings) and Psusennes I (at Tanis). A splendid production, at an attractive price. A glossary and a chronology are included, but strangely, there is no index or bibliography. Distributed by Rizzoli (St. Martin's Press). 9.5x12" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
