128pp ISBN 0813911222 Jean M. Burk's manuscript does an excellent job in discussing the fabrication of brass candlesticks and, more importantly, in discussing the fabrication of the various ejection devices developed with the two-part stem. The identification and working dates of sixty eighteenth-century Birmingham candlestick makers is especially helpful and, even more so, is the detailed information about the seven firms which marked their candlesticks, and the very thorough analysis of their marked examples. very good+ w/very good+ dustjacket (hardcover).
