by The Owen Cheatham Foundation (1959/1970)
When I finally found a nice copy of this book for a decent price, I bought it. And I am glad I did. The hardcover copy I got came with the slipcase intact. The book has tipped-in color plates on every other page.
The photos of the jewels are done well, and the colors are vibrant. A very nice book considering its age. With this book, I also received supplements for three additional jewels not included in the original publication, bringing the total jewels in this edition to 28 + 3.
Be aware that there are several printings of this catalog (1959, 1965, and 1970). It appears that there are printings subsequent to 1970, presumably with additional jewels. The 1970 printing has 36 jewels bound into the edition.
You can expect to pay $40 and up for this book. If buying the hardcover, look for the slipcase, it has a nice color photo on the front.
