9781589796867: Lest We Forget: Masterpieces of Patriotic Jewelry and Military Decorations

Since ancient times, memorable moments of military history have been commemorated with jewelry, medals, and symbolic accessories. In Lest We Forget: Masterpieces of Patriotic Jewelry and Military Decorations, Judith Price illuminates iconic military objects, exploring their origins and documenting their place in history. The dramatic compilation of patriotic jewelry and decorations presented in Price’s sixth book tells a truly dazzling story of Western historical conflict and resolution.

Lest We Forget serves as a stunning tribute to our men and women in service both past and present. This book derives its title from the poem “Recessional” by Rudyard Kipling, often used as a tribute in war memorials, while its contents chronicle our military history since the Revolution through 150 iconic artifacts. It showcases such diverse items as the Washington Peace Medals to the Indians, the earliest Medals of Honor, Civil War Corps badges, British military decorations, and historic French treasures. Drawn from leading world museums and private collections such as the British Museum, the West Point Museum, the Musée de l’Armée, and the Imperial War Museum, the objects depicted in this book movingly recall the role of decorations and jewelry in commemorating war and peace.

About the Author:

Judith Price is President of the National Jewelry Institute and author of three other books on antique jewelry. She lives in New York City.

Review:

My grandfather was so proud of his military service that even after his presidency he preferred to be called General Eisenhower. (Anne Eisenhower)

Judith Price...has produced a unique and fascinating book that catalogues and beautifully illustrates the finest of these works. One cannot read it without pondering the tragic losses and the heroism of the human beings for which many of these works are memorials, and the best of these works reflect in their art the greatness of the valor and sacrifice of their recipients. (John Lehman, former Secretary of the Navy)

I genuinely believe that the men and women in uniform for today's American armed forces are the best in history. (Pete Dawkins, Ret'd. Brigadier General, USA Heisman Trophy Winner)

[This] book that illustrates with iconic objects the history of the military is an impressive tribute to the service and valor shown in the past by millions of Americans. As one who had the honor of serving in the military, I can look back upon it as an invaluable learning experience, one that introduced to me to fellow citizens I would otherwise have not met, and my respect for these people I shall retain forever. Lest We Forget celebrates the high esteem that citizens rightly realize after agreeing to serve in the interest of others. (Gay Talese, author of A Writer's Life)

Whether you are a student of military history or jewelry design, you’ll find the time spent with this book worthwhile. (Antique Trader Magazine)

The book tells the story of our military history since the revolution and features 150 iconic objects from the world's leading military museums and private collections. To date, no such book has ever been published. (Collector's News)

Lest We Forget is an ideal coffee table pick, highly recommended. (Midwest Book Review)

Lest We Forget reminds the reader of the gratitude we owe our gallant men and women who have served in the military. (Steven Wayne Yvaska)
