Description:

Quarto. 214pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over green cloth, with gold lettering on spine. Illustrated with 405 photographic reproductions, including 46 in full color, this book delves into the history, significance, and art of these fascinating jewels. Here are royal rings, papal rings, engagement and wedding rings, and hundreds more, wrought of materials that range from the most precious of metals to iron and bone. There are also rings made to contain relics, set with signets and carved gems, encrusted with jewels, inlaid with enamels. There are rings from tombs and treasuries, circlets signifying power, joy and sorrow from every great period of civilization. This work is divided into 4 sections, each of which has been written by an expert in the particular historical period. The first part, "The Rings of Antiquity" is by Dr. Anne Ward and covers every major civilization from the days of the Pharaohs to the Byzantine Empire. Part 2, "Medieval Rings (1100-1500)," by John Cherry, investigates types both sacred and secular from all over Europe. The third part, "Rings from 1500 to 1900," by Charlotte Gere, discusses magnificent Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo jewels. The fourth and final part, "Twentieth-century Rings," is by Barbara Cartlidge, and goes from exquisite Art Nouveau specimens through Art Deco and Cartier examples, concluding with rings made of unusual synthetic materials and those with erotic and Pop Art themes of the last decades. Dust jacket is partly creased, with a tiny closed tear at lower margin of front cover. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
