Synopsis
A catalogue of the Alice and Louis Koch collection of finger rings. Comprising 1980 rings from over 4000 years, this collection affords the scholar an almost uninterrupted study of the evolution of ring shapes and design, providing new evidence for dating. Further, through this miniature art form historical events, religious practices, social customs and superstitions may be traced and identified. Combining illustration and scholarship, this book displays all 1980 rings in full colour with at least two views. In addition, there are 16 colour plates showing in enlargement over 140 selected items from the collection. The work is accessible for both German and English readers, with a description and critical commentary for each ring in German, accompanied by an English summary.
