Synopsis

Celebrating the cultural heritage of the countries along the Silk Route, this text explores the ancient trade route between Europe and the Far East, more specifically between Rome and the old Chinese capital of Xian. It examines the beautiful works of art discovered in each country, and sets them in their historical and geographical context. The author provides a comprehensive history of the Silk Road, drawing freely on anecdotes and literary and historical sources he examines the lives of the merchants and other travellers who used this route. Vignettes and poems from the heydey of the great trading route punctuate a lively and colourful text, which also features Antonia Tozer's evocative photographs.

Jonathan Tucker and Antonia Tozer operate a gallery in St James's, London, and are both former employees of Spink and Son, where Jonathan ran the Indian and Southeast Asian department and Antonia was a specialist in the Chinese department.
