From the Preface: "Dumbarton Oaks possesses a small but first-rate collection of ivories carved in the Mediterranean area between the second and fifteenth centuries of our era. . . . The aim of this booklet is . . . to examine the nature of ivory and to consider it as both a substance displaying certain consistent characteristics and as a material of varying availability treated by craftsmen in various and peculiar ways."
