Book Description Book Condition: New. Drawing on extensive modern research, this scholarly book spans almost eight centuries, from the Norman Conquest to the accession of Queen Victoria. It is as instructive to the social historian as to the jewellery enthusiast, since it tells us not only what the pieces looked like but sets them in their social context. Want to know about buttons in the fourteenth century? See page 54. Watches in the early eighteenth century? Turn to page 296. The author has beautifully illustrated the work with many pieces from private collections that would not be readily accessible for study. The book supersedes Dr Joan Evans's English Jewellery, published more than 90 years ago, as the standard authority. Bookseller Inventory # 2288
