7652 - The Ages of Gold

GREEN Timothy

Mines, markets, merchants and goldsmiths from Egypt to Troy, Rome to Byzantium, and Venice to the space age. This is the story of the mines, the markets, the goldsmiths and the merchants who, over the last 6.000 years, made gold a symbol of wealth and power, both in wonderful ornaments ans as money in people's pockets. Building on forty years' experience investigating the modern market, Timothy Green has sought out its ancient origins in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Troy, Minoan Crete, Greece, China, Rome, Byzantium, Venice and Precolumbian South America. In good condition, with a dustjacket.
