First Edition. 1.2 kg; 192 pages, last seven pages blank. 1101 items are listed, where possible with credit to the artist or maker, with a price range indicated of the auctioneer's expectations. The major pieces have an accompanying illustration in colour. Colour illustrated dust jacket. Blue place marker ribbon, which some enterprising person has carefully unwoven for almost a complete length, leaving lots of single threads. Otherwise in very good condition. This auction represented the breaking up of the private collection of a pair of antique dealers who died within 12 months of each other. Their collection featured the best of everything. Delicate, fine, elegant. These words described mostly the arts, and statuary that were offered for sale. My guess is that most of the items that were sold had not been seen for 20 years, and probably will not resurface for sale in Melbourne for at least that long again. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

The major pieces have an accompanying illustration in colour. Colour illustrated dust jacket. Blue place marker ribbon. In very good condition. This auction represented the breaking up of the private collection of a pair of antique dealers who died within 12 months of each other. Their collection featured the best of everything. Delicate, fine, elegant. These words described mostly the arts, and statuary that were offered for sale. My guess is that most of the items that were sold had not been seen for 20 years, and probably will not resurface for sale in Melbourne for at least that long again. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

The major pieces have an accompanying illustration in colour. Colour illustrated dust jacket. Blue place marker ribbon. In very good condition. This auction represented the breaking up of the private collection of a pair of antique dealers who died within 12 months of each other. Their collection featured the best of everything. Delicate, fine, elegant. These words described mostly the arts, and statuary that were offered for sale. My guess is that most of the items that were sold had not been seen for 20 years, and probably will not resurface for sale in Melbourne for at least that long again. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

Illustrated with colour plates, black-and-white photographs, and hand drawn copies of the marks and tools, the book is invaluable in settling the argument on whether one company was naughty, and made their "identification marks" intentionally similar to another company stop no matter that one company was in Wales, and the other in England.
