Sigmund Freud was a passionate collector of ancient art, ultimately amassing some 2000 works from Egypt, Greece, Rome and the near East and Asia. This book - originally published in conjunction with the Freud Museum in London and a touring exhibition of the finest pieces in the collection - examines what the works meant to Freud and the connections he made between art, antiquities, archaeology and psychoanalysis. The illustrations include colour plates of almost 90 antiquities, as well as documentary pictures of Freud's life and home.

The book tells the story of how the British consular service in the Aegean, in the years of the British protectorate of the Ionian Islands (1815-1864) became an agency for the retrieval, excavation and collection of antiquities eventually destined for the British Museum. Exploring the historical, political and diplomatic circumstances that allowed the consular service to develop from a chartered company, into a state run institution under the direction of the Foreign Office, this book provides a unique perspective on the intersection of state policy and the collecting of antiquities.

The foundation of the American Academy in Rome dates back more than one hundred years to the early decades of the last century. Over the years, the Academy has acquired a study collection of material goods from antiquity, including coins, statues and figurines, lamps, stucco and other architectural fragments, jewelry, and inscriptions. While most are Roman in origin, some pieces are Greek or Etruscan. Some were gifts, others come from long-ago excavations, a few were bought. The Collection of Antiquities of the American Academy in Rome, the latest addition to the Supplements to the Memoirs of the American Academy in Rome series, focuses on highlights of the collection.
