About this Item

With the exception of the chapter on Egyptian jewellery, the work is confined to Europe, and is in 4 main divisions: the first is of jewellery worn during classical times to the 9th century. The second is of the jewels of the Middle Ages. The third is devoted to the jewels of the Renaissance, and the fourth is of the jewels to the beginning of the 20th century. The fullest treatment is given to the 16th and 17th centuries. In chapters of the Renaissance and later, Smith has used evidence from engraved designs and working drawings of jewellery, personal inventories and pictures by old masters. Intended mainly for the connoisseur, the book remains a classic for lovers of jewelry and jewelry historians. F/edgewrn DJ with a corner torn off at back section. Bookseller Inventory # 148
