This volume, published by the Ernst Herzfeld Society, presents contributions from the European colloquies in Vienna in 2007 and in Bamberg in 2008, which were organised on behalf of the Society. Subjects include architecture and archaeology as well as painting, textile arts, minor and applied arts. They cover the lands from Spain to Iran and India, and back to Europe; in chronology, they range from the Early Islamic period to the 20th century. Following the title of the Vienna colloquy, aspects of representation are a red herring in several contributions; in others, trade and reception in or from Europe. Each contribution starts with an English abstract. 160 figures, partly in color and most of them published for the first time, turn the volume into a sumptuously illustrated book. German and English text.
