Limited to 750 regular edition copies. Sinkankas 3702 *** Condition: Complete with all plates as issued. Light wear and soiling to boards with scattered scrapes and chipping to decorative paper panels; top and bottom of spine panel shows more extensive loss. Bookplate of Forbes Library, Northampton Mass. on front pastedown, perforated stamp on title page, small Forbes Library ink stamp on front or back of plates, and old circulation slip with "Withdrawn" stamp on rear pastedown. Top edge gilt, remaining edges uncut, as issued. Hinges cracked with covers still well attached to book and pages 311-314 plus 2 plates loose but otherwise the binding is tight. Except for the occasional stamp, the book is internally clean and unmarked. *** In this work, Kunz covers every aspect of ivory from its sources and composition, to its carving and commerce. An excellent chapter on the elephant in history highlighting its lore and legends is provided followed by a chapter on elephant hunting and procurement of tusks. The illustrations supplementing the text are of high quality and great variety, including the display of many outstanding museum specimens. Sinkankas describes this title as "A complex, large work, by far the best yet written on the subject". He also notes that this book is the rarest of Kunz's major works. *** An American gem expert, George F. Kunz (1856-1932) published extensively on the subject of precious stones. He is also remembered for revolutionizing the gem industry through his marketing of semi-precious stones, which up until then, were largely ignored by jewelers and collectors. He was long associated with Tiffany and Co. and the USGS, and served as president for many prominent clubs and organizations. The mineral kunzite, a pink gem variety of spodumene, was named in his honor. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Ivory and the Elephant in Art, in Archaeology, and in Science In citing these few names from among those of the many able writers who have treated of the artistic use of ivory, we have merely aimed to indicate some of the more exhaustive or better known literature, and must refer those seeking for detailed information to the catalogues of the principal libra ries. The splendid lecture by Sir Richard Owen, delivered before the London Society of Arts in 1856, contained much of value and interest.
