This catalogue consists of over 600 drawings, most of them beautifully finished in pen and ink, for sixteenth-century jewels, seals and medals. Most are by Etienne Delaune (1518-1583) and include many elegant designs for jewellery and other ornaments for Catherine de Medici, her husband, Henri II and their sons Francois II, Charles IX, and Henri III. The collection is a unique survival from the French Renaissance, unequalled in the quantity and quality of the designs.
