Caroline Silver 1625-1688

£9.99

Product description

Charles Oman's particular interest has been in the seventeenth century, because he felt that it has been inadequately studied by earlier writers. His choice to write on Caroline Silver was strongly supported by the research he had for a considerable time been conducting into the history of the craft lying still unmined in the archives of the Goldsmiths' Company. The result is an epoch-making volume whose importance no student of the subject can fail to recognize. Mr Oman's selections for his illustrations of many pieces in public possession outside the great national museums has, as he explains, been deliberately made to lead the reader to a wider realization of the treasures of the period which still survive for our enjoyment.

Hardback book in good condition, with the edges of the spine slightly bumped. Comes with a good dust jacket, shelf worn. There is a small closed tear on the top edge of the front cover and another small closed tear along the top edge of the back cover. The top of the dust jacket is slightly discoloured.
