The British Museum : 250 years by Marjorie Caygill( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and Chinese and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been published to record a quarter of a millennium in the life of the most famous museum in the world. The founding of the British Museum - the first ever public, national and secular institution of its kind - took place on 7 June 1753 by means of an Act of Parliament. Today, around 5 million people visit it each year, successors to countless others who have passed along Great Russell Street since the Museum opened to the public for the first time on 15 January 1759. Some of their comments - both admiring and critical, but rarely indifferent - are given here." "The British Museum's unique collections, drawn from cultures throughout the world from prehistory to the present, are shown as they were gathered together decade by decade under one roof - Sir Hans Sloane's Durer drawings, Sir Williams Hamilton's Greek vases, the Rosetta Stone, the sculptures of the Parthenon, Assyrian lions, Mixtec-Aztec turquoise mosaics, the Oxus treasure, the 'Ram in the thicket' from the Great Death Pit at Ur, the Sutton Hoo ship burial, Japanese paintings, African carvings, Wedgwood pottery, and coins from the Cuerdale Viking hoard, to name but a few. The British Museum: 250 Years is a pictorial celebration of these and other treasures, illustrating how this fascinating and complex institution has developed over the course of two and a half centuries."--BOOK JACKET
