A section of repairing musical box cases offers advice on all aspects of restoration, from curing woodworm to the right way to remove the veneer from a veneered panel. The book concludes with a useful glossary of musical box components, including their English, French and German equivalents."

New York Harry N. Abrams/Metropolitan Museum of Art 1997 0810940477 / 9780810940475 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
344 pp, 4to (11 1/8" H). "Drawing on fresh research and Cartier's extraordinarily complete archives in Paris, London, and New York, (the author) traces for the first time the history of individual jewels, identifying the clients who commissioned or purchased them and following the entire creative process from initial designs to finished pieces. Sketches and archival photographs reveal the astonishing variety of Cartier's creations, and previously unpublished original plaster casts document major pieces no longer in existence. More than 225 objects, mainly from Cartier's own historic collection, and more than seventy finished designs are individually discussed and shown in stunning photographs. Also reproduced are Egyptian, Chinese and other artifacts used by Cartier's designers as sources of inspiration, along with pages from order books, contemporary advertisements and trade catalogues, fashion photographs from Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, and pictures of the firm's celebrated clientele - among them, Daisy Fellowes, the Begum Aga Khan, Marjorie Merriweather Post, Elsie de Wolfe, and Gloria Swanson - wearing their glittering Cartier jewels. Published to accompany a major exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the British Museum, London, (this book) is a rich resource for collectors and connoisseurs, and will thrill all who dream about fine jewelry." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small line indentation on rear board. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and at top rear edge, very light browning on spine and hinges.
