The unlimited edition, in red cloth. 2 vols, cloth, large 4to, 29 cm, xxxiii, 570 + 571-1179 pp, 2 colour plates, numerous text ills. 7, 458 entries. This is a meticulously detailed bibliography of works on gems and precious stones, written by a world-renowned authority and drawing extensively on his own superb collection. Coverage extends from 1500 to 1985, with nearly 7, 500 entries-predominantly books, but including also major journal articles of historical value. Works in all the major Western languages are included. Sinkankas provides detailed bibliographic descriptions, plus what are often extensive annotations describing the book's contents, placing it in historical context and appraising its accuracy, importance and strengths and weaknesses. A splendid work, greeted with great acclaim on publication-"the most important book that a gemologist could have"-was a typical comment-and unlikely to be surpassed for many years to come.
