Jewelry History: A Core Bibliography in Support of Preservation

Fall 1991 Intern

Notes for the electronic edition: This text was scanned, subjected to optical character recognition, corrected, and reformatted by Walter Henry, Summer 1993. Despite extensive corrections, an extremely high error-rate in the scanned text renders this edition “suspect” and it should not be considered authoritative; for critical work, please consult the printed edition. Errors in the original text have, for the most part been left in place.

The intent of this project, conducted as an internship toward a master’s degree from the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, Catholic University of America, was to create a core bibliography in support of preservation of scholarly jewelry research, and to encourage the interest and involvement of jewelry historians, appraisers, professionals, collectors and connoisseurs in preservation initiatives.
