Review quote

'For the complete beginner (this book) can be wholeheartedly recommended. The author... has crammed into a booklet that can easily be slipped into the pocket a text notable for its practical advice and most helpful illustrations. The latter include details of hallmarks which will make their interpretation clear to the amateur'. Terence Mullaly, 'Daily Telegraph'.show more
