    Notes: MINT New, in publishers original plastic wrap. The excavations at Qasr-I Abu Nasr were begun in 1932 during the Great Depression in the United States. The trustees of The Metropolitan Museum of Art had cut down on the fieldwork they subsidized in Egypt, but took the opportunity to authorize excavations¿on a very small scale¿in Iran. Shah Riza Pahlavi had abrogated the treaty that had given France sole permission to excavate in that country; thus it was possible to further the Museum¿s interest in Sasanian art and archeology, which had begun with the joint excavations with the Germans at Ctesiphon in Iraq in 1931¿32. This publication aims to set this site in its regional history and explore its characteristics in a series of hypotheses. The presentation of the artifacts from Qasr-I Abu Nasr is meant to be an important guide for future studies. 272 pages, 158 illustrations (1 in full color). 8 1/2'' x 11''. Hardcover; clothbound. Heavy.
