Palm Beach Jewelry and Antique Show 2004 catalog (and Newspaper)
3 Palm Beach Jewelry and Antique Show 2004 catalog (and Newspaper)
USA UBS Main sponsor 2004 February 13-17 Card cover Very good 
This is not an auction catalog. The treasures are placed in booths where vendors answer questions, offer information, and in the end seal a deal that make both seller and buyer leave happy. What's interesting of course is the items presented in the catalog as advertising. All are on golssy paper and in full color. The newspaper was from the Palm Beach News highlighting art, jewelry and antiques not only over the counter, but also in seminars. A few titles are these: The Inside Story -- Behind Some of the World's Great Jewels; The Connoisseur's Heart -- the Joy of Living With Antiques and Art; and Collecting Faberge. The catalog shows a bit of wear to cover's edges, but is clean and tightly bound. There are some names written at the front, but none cause a problem. The catalog measures 9" x 11" and has 83 pages.

5 Eunice and Herbert Shatzman Dark Jewels: Chinese Black and Brown Ceramics From the Shatzman Collection
Chapel Hill, North Carolina Ackland Art Museum ; the University of North Carolina 2002 0965580580 Presumed first Card cover Very good 
This is an exhibition catalog with beautiful photographs showing the various colors and types of ceramics from China. The catalog measures 9" x 11" and has 79 pages, plus an area at the back of the catalog for notes. These offer extra information and will take you to the item you want to see. You will also find a bibliograhy. The book is clean and tightly bound and has no names or writing. The only defects are a little toning at the margins which show in bright light and a bit of tape at the top front corner near the spine. I couldn't remove the tape, but wasn't sure I should anyway. Altogether it's beautiful and I priced it far below others. The catalog has an ample text, so there's much to read.

Jewels for a Crown; The Story of the Chagall Windows (1962), Freund, Miriam
6 Freund, Miriam Jewels for a Crown; The Story of the Chagall Windows (1962)
New York McGraw-Hill 1962 Hard cover Near fine condition 
I do love a hard cover booklet and this is exactly what this charmer is -- it even has a dust jacket. The blue boards are wonderfully textured with a series of squares -- blue on blue. The booklet measures 7"x 10" and is as clean and bright as new. No names or writing and no tears or chips. I will also cover the jacket with brand new mylar to keep it as beautiful as it is now. The book features 13 color plates. Marc Chagall's famous Jerusalem windows are not only beautifully presented, but so is their story. Would make a lovely gift. 64 pages. (ART III)
