This e-book issues the divide among neighborhood and international antiquarianisms concentrating on case reports drawn essentially from the Mediterranean and the Americas. either areas host powerful pre-modern antiquarian traditions that experience persevered to improve in periods of colonialism. In either areas, furthermore, colonial encounters were mediated by means of the antiquarian practices and personal tastes of eu elites. the 2 areas additionally express salient adjustments. For example, Europeans claimed the “antiquities” of the jap Mediterranean as a part of their very own, “classical,” history, while they perceived these of the Americas as primarily alien, at the same time they tried to appreciate them through analogy to the classical international. those easy issues of comparability and distinction supply a framework for conjoint research of the emergence of hybrid or cross-bred antiquarianisms. Rather than assuming that curiosity in antiquity is a human common, this ebook explores the conditions below which the earlier itself is produced and reworked via encounters among antiquarian traditions over universal items of interpretation.
