While most authors of Tibetan art books confine themselves to the religious art of Tibet, there is another, fantastic, aspect of Tibetan material culture-the luxury goods for the clergy and nobility. Through the good fortune of having been selected as the recipient of a massive collection formed in the early part of the 20th century and augmented by various gifts and purchases over the intervening years, the Newark Museum of Art has accumulate a stunning collection of these kinds of materials

The collection of Tibetan Art at the Newark Museum has long been referred to as one of the finest collections of art of Tibet in North America. This is a well-organized and clearly written general reference work on Tibetan art and culture for the non-specialist. The illustrations work well with the text though I wish they were closer together on the pages. Many of the essays are illustrated with historic photographs from the Museum�s own extensive archive. These photographs from the early 1900�s are another unique element of the Newark collection that deserves a separate publication.
