Malta is noted for its strong antique collecting community. This book depicts numerous images and descriptions of unpublished artistic works of exceptional quality found, not in the Magisterial Palace or state museums, but in private Maltese homes--or "Maltese house museums." Many of the items included are not family heirlooms, but were procured on the market over the past 20 years. Examples include statuary, porcelain and maiolica, paintings and other illustrations, textiles and clothing, weapons and armor, coins and medals, silver, printed documents and maps, toys, souvenirs, and other items. Author Attard (tax law, U. of Malta) was assisted by Azzopardi. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
