Treasures of Royal Museums Greenwich
Beautifully illustrated and accompanied by extraordinary histories, this book is a celebration of 100 of the most important and exquisite objects in the Royal Museums Greenwich collections, including some of the most significant new acquisitions of the last ten years. From Elizabeth I, the Armada Portrait to the uniform Nelson wore during the Battle of Trafalgar; Harrison’s remarkable timepieces to Yinka Shonibare’s Ship in a Bottle; the last message of Sir John Franklin’s ill-fated expedition to find the North-West Passage to George Stubbs’s Kangaroo and Dingo paintings, the Museum’s iconic objects are presented in a chronological format, each selected for their unique significance.
• Written by experts and well regarded historians
• Beautifully illustrated with over 120 images
• Each object is accompanied by a lively and fascinating story
• Paperback, 224 pages.
Our shop products are inspired by many of the treasures found at Royal Museums Greenwich, such as our Armada A3 sized print, H4 inspired Pocket Watches, our Nelson collection and HMS Victory in a bottle.
