1st. Hardcover. Near Fine, Near Fine. 
rubbing to heel of spine cloth, price-clipped dust jacket.

The qualities of design that lift work in gold and diamonds to the level of a minor art have often been applied to materials of less intrinsic value, but never more interestingly than when between 1795 and 1850 iron and steel, the typical materials of the Industrial Revolution, were widely used for jewellery. Anne Clifford, in the first book ever devoted to Cut-steel and Berlin Iron jewellery, has written engagingly and informatively about their history, showing how in the latter part of the Napoleonic Wars both types became popular among all classes of European society, and how workers in it achieved original and unique effects. This book, with 4 plates in colour and 36 in monochrome, illustrates a wide range of examples both from the author's own collection and from other private sources, as well as national museums.

reprinted 2002.

The catalogues of the Paris Salons from the turn of the century provide a unique archive of illustrations of the decorative arts at a pivotal time in their development. These volumes contain over 5,500 illustrations of items of jewellery by leading designers such as Boucheron, Chaumet and Lalique. The pictures have been sourced and re-photographed from the original and often rare catalogues. They have been rearranged alphabetically by artist-designer thus providing an indispensable and practical reference for this seminal twenty year period. They are a unique source for identification and authentication, and an invaluable key both to design ideas and the jewellery of the period.

signed by both authors and inscribed by Munn to Gwendolyn Werth Luttrell who authored several publications on precious and base metals.

This richly illustrated book covers one of the most fascinating yet poorly documented periods of jewellery design. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was a group of young, rebellious artists whose work reflected their deeply romantic private lives. This remarkable and carefully researched book traces the stories behind jewels designed by these artists, often right back to the original drawings. Many new discoveries are featured. As many as 30 designs appear for which no jewel has yet been traced. 103 colour illustrations, 141 black and white illustrations.

small strip of scarring to front pastedown from label removal, small bumping to upper corner of rear board, dust jacket with small chipping to laminate at upper corner of rear panel.

In this comprehensive study of Renaissance jewellery, the first substantial work of its kind, Yvonne Hackenbroch brings to the subject not only her own highly specialized knowledge, but historical discipline. The book is arranged into various countries of origin; a form which serves to mirror the emergence of the Renaissance style in Italy, its spread into the rest of Europe and its eclipse before the outbreak of the Thirty Years' War. Over one thousand jewels are illustrated, some well-known and others never before published, together with portraits, engravings and drawings. Illustrated with 45 colour plates (each with several items) and over 900 black and white illustrations.

Castellani and Giuliano: Revivalist Jewellers of the 19th Century, Munn, Geoffrey C.
16 Munn, Geoffrey C.Castellani and Giuliano: Revivalist Jewellers of the 19th Century
London: Trefoil Books, 1984
0862940443 / 9780862940447
1st. Hardcover. Fine, Fine. 
inscribed by Munn to Gwendolyn Werth Luttrell who authored several publications on precious and base metals.

No nineteenth-century lady of fashion visiting Italy would consider her tour of Rome complete without calling at Castellani's shop near the Spanish Steps to acquire one of the famous pieces of Italian Archaeological jewellery offered there. This is a history of the firm founded by Fortunato Pio Castellani (1794-1865) and continued by his sons until 1930. It is also the history of the firm started by Carlo Giuliano (1852-1895) who managed the Paris and London branches of Castellani and of his son Arthur. The interest in these two firms lies both in their use of a fascinating range of materials and techniques and in their interpretation of antique sources to create jewellery in the spirit of nineteenth-century eclecticism. 115 black & white illustrations and 45 in colour.
