A good clean First Edition copy of "Cutting and Setting Stones", by Herbert Scarfe, published by B.T. Batsford of London in 1972. The author, a well known lecturer and tutor in lapidary, here explains the technical processes of stone cutting and polishing, at the same time relating particular stone shapes to the methods of jewellery mounting most appropriate to each. Successive stages in the development of traditional settings are described and illustrated, always with the underlying purpose of marrying the qualities of any given stone to the setting where it will be displayed to greatest advantage. The best possible guide for the amateur to the cutting and setting of stones. Fully illustrated throughout in black and white plus two fine full colour plates. Hard covers, 95 pages, minor foxing to endpapers, original dust jacket .
