“This book contains some of the most striking color photographs you have ever seen of golden objects of art and commerce throughout history.
The history of gold is in many ways the history of civilization itself.  In recording man’s complex and ambivalent relationship with the “noblest” of metals, this book begins with the role gold played in the earliest societies – a role that combined mystic significance with the supreme symbol of divine authority – and traces its history to the present.”
