Pewter Collecting for Amateurs - Kenneth Ullyett

Frederick Muller, 1967, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with slight fraying at the head of the spine and top corners, crease and short closed tear to the foot of the lower panel. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The fascinating, haunting sheen of old pewter has a powerful appeal for present-day collectors, for the alloy itself is synonymous with history. Whether it be old Church alms dishes, candlesticks, toasting cups, loving-cups, Masonic pieces, chargers, plates, tavern-pots or chamberpots, pewter shows us how our ancestors designed the alloy for ceremonial, personal or domestic use. Or just for the beauty of it.
