9781330167922: The Miniature Collector: A Guide for the Amateur, Collector of Portrait Miniatures (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Miniature Collector: A Guide for the Amateur, Collector of Portrait Miniatures

In the Bibliography, I have adopted a somewhat different plan from that I have used in other books, and have given some information as to the importance, or contents, of the books in question, to guide any future purchasers. Above all, it has been my desire, in accordance with the wish of' the editor of this series, to make the book one of practical value, to give the information in simple language, avoiding as far as possible, technicalities, or the jargon of a collector, and thus to produce a work which will be useful, I venture to hope, to the person commencing to collect, and will yet not be scorned by those who already own a collee tion, and desire to know more about the artists who were responsible for their treasures.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 390 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Excerpt from The Miniature Collector: A Guide for the Amateur, Collector of Portrait MiniaturesSome apology is surely needed from me, for inflicting yet another book about miniatures upon a long-suffering public; but I hope that this latest work may fill the position that is at the moment vacant, and may supply information that is needed. My chief excuse for it consists in the fact that new material bearing on this, my special subject, is constantly being discovered, and I have here endeavoured - to use a familiar expression - to bring the science up to date. Investigations in archives and records quite often bring to light new facts about miniature painters and their doings, and as an example, there is information in this book concerning Nicholas Hilliard and the gold mines of Scotland, in which he is actually described as Queen Elizabeths portrait painter, that has only been brought before the public notice in the Rhind lectures delivered by Mr. Warrach during the past few months, having hitherto been buried in the dry pages of a scarce reprint (issued in 1815) of a precious Elizabethan document. Of one miniature painter, who is here described, practically all the information given is new. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
