The "One Hundred Missing Objects" Series


This series presents a selection of objects that have been stolen from public collections or looted from archaeological sites. Excerpts from the laws of the countries concerned are also given to remind readers of the illicit nature of any export of these objects. The publications also serve to make known the institutions which, alongside ICOM take action and implement ways of fighting the illicit traffic in cultural property. This richly illustrated of the book helps raise awareness and inform the public, as well as its role of enabling verifications of objects.
Each issue contains extracts on acquisitions from ICOM's Code of Ethics for Museums.

DISTRIBUTION
All volumes of the "One Hundred Missing Objects" series have been widely distributed to police and customs authorities, museums, art dealers and auction houses as well as other organisations combating the illicit traffic in cultural property.
