Catalogue of an exhibition at Bonhams Auctioneers, Edinburgh, Scotland (January 2013) showcasing fascinating objects of pre-Islamic and Islamic art of Central Asia and the Silk Road from a Scottish private collection.

Most of the items are on public display for the first time, some of them are related to the lesser known cultures of the ancient Silk Road such as Soghdian, early Turkic, Qara Khitay and others. The exhibits date from the 6th century B.C. to the 15th century A.D. This catalogue offers a valuable contribution to the history of art of pre-Islamic and Islamic Central Asian, Inner Asian and Silk Road Studies.
