The book discusses the doors, bolts and locks of Egypt, Greece, Rome, ancient Israel and China. It also devotes a chapter to ancient restraints (i.e. fetters and manacles). There are currently no books that address this unusual topic in any detail.This book, written in easy to understand language, is well illustrated with many in color.

Included are never before published photos of keys and locks from the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. It is footnoted and has an extensive bibliography. Only 250 copies have been printed.To purchase this book please contact me directly. I can be contacted through Goodreads or by email - [email protected] J.
