King Plates: A History of Aboriginal Gorgets

Front Cover
Aboriginal Studies Press, 1993 - Art - 151 pages

This book describes and illustrates the large collection of Aboriginal gorgets held by the National Museum of Australia. However, it is far more than a mere catalogue--it provides a comprehensive history of king plates, describes other gorgets not in the collection, lists references to pictures of Aboriginal people wearing gorgets, and includes a useful bibliography.
