The Gayer Anderson Cat
Members' price *
The Gayer Anderson Cat has been one of the most admired objects at the British Museum since its arrival in 1947. This book presents a detailed description of the Cat and a discussion of its possible meaning and role in ancient times. Surprising new finds from scientific analyses are presented for the first time, shedding light on the Cat's somewhat traumatic modern history, from its acquisition by the British Army major and avid antiquities collector John Gayer Anderson to its donation to the British Museum. The fascinating narrative is complemented by outstanding new photography.
