Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967961254, Paperback)

Queen of Sheba: Legend and Reality accompanied the first American exhibition of artifacts about the Queen of Sheba from the British Museum. The spectacular treasures, some from the 1st century, bring to life the history of Queen of Sheba's fascinating ancient civilization, still mostly unfamiliar to a Western audience. Included among the exhibit's stunning prints, drawings and film stills that illustrate various explanations of the Queen of Sheba legend are works of art from various periods beautifully displayed in full color. The narrative in English gives the Queen's history and the history of the art that celebrates her life and reign.
