The Book Of Amber by George C. Williamson


Only 1 remaining

Erhnest Benn, 1932. First edition. 268 pages. B & w plates. Part loss to boards on top of spine, otherwise a very good copy.

'Dr. Williamsons most admirable book upon the origin, history, characters, distribution, and uses of this remarkable fossil resin from pines and other trees. It is, indeed, strange that, with the exception of some rare booklets and scattered papers or incidental chapters in other works, no general monograph of this kind, bringing together everything of interest concerning amber, has been published. Dr. Williamson writes with expert knowledge of his subject, and has devoted his leisure time over a period of twelve years to the compilation of his book.'
