The Craft of Ivory
Sources, Techniques, and Uses in the Mediterranean World: A.D. 200–1400
Anthony Cutler

Dumbarton Oaks possesses a small but first-rate collection of ivories carved in the Mediterranean area between the second and fifteenth centuries. This booklet examines the nature of ivory and considers it as both a substance displaying certain consistent characteristics and as a material of varying availability treated by craftsmen in various and peculiar ways.
