[8]-285 pages. Index. Sumptuously illustrated with colour photos and illustrations upon glossy stock. "At the crossroads of art book, historical research and technical manual, a book designed as a jewellery walk through time and space. From the Early Bronze Age to Fine Jewellery, 4,700 years surveyed, 32 historians consulted, 22 museums involved; 76 contributors, jewellers, artists and designers from 30 countries. Four millennia of inventiveness in jewellery are unveiled and illustrated with unpublished photographs; the operation of an ancient Egyptian clasp and the origin of the box clasp are finally revealed." - back board. Clean, bright and unmarked with very light wear. No just jacket, apparently as issued. An excellent copy of this very attractive and highly informative work. 10" x 8.75". Book
