Sur les routes de la soie (suite)

J'avais presque été raisonnable question achats de livres sur ce sujet.

C'était compter sans l'intervention perfide de ma fée des jardins qui me signale innocemment ce livre qui " pourrait m intéresser " :-)

et qui m'a permis d'en découvrir trois autres également fort tentants :

illustrated account of the adventures of the great Silk Road explorer and archaeologist Sir Aurel Stein

Ce qu'en dit l'éditeur :
This catalogue on the Silk Road is published to accompany a major exhibition at the British Library. Containing high-quality reproductions of the exhibits and extended captions, this book will also consist of a substantial introduction by the editor, and essays by leading scholars presenting new research based on the great range of items displayed.
There has never been an exhibition of such a large part of the Aurel Stein collection, comprising manuscripts, paintings, artefacts in equal numbers and with emphasis on both religious and secular material and all languages and cultures. The catalogue will therefore be an essential purchase for all scholars of Central Asian and Silk Road history and art, and its extensive illustration and accessible texts will prove attractive to a much wider range of readers

Trop cher pour mon budget (je n'en ai pas l'air mais j'essaie quand même de rester raisonnable ) mais je note quand même la référence.

J'ai commandé Life along the silk road et Route de la soie, dieux, guerriers et marchands...
