Revue de presse: 'There can be few collections of gems and rings in private hands that are so large, rich and varied and which contain so many items of such importance. The tone is set by the very first item in the catalogue: a contemporary bust in the round of Queen Elizabeth as Hercules. There are important Greek and Roman gems and rings, and a rich assortment of Late Antique and Merovingian gems and rings, as well as Byzantine and Medieval gems and gem-settings, including spectacular works from the court of the Hohenstaufen Emperor Frederick II. For me the stars of the show lie in the Renaissance and Early Modern period, especially the representation of an Indian rhinoceros: a cameo carved by Jacopo da Trezzo. A number of the gems are recorded as having come from important old collections for instance those formally in the possession of, respectively, the Earl of Arundel, Cardinal Albani, Marlborough, Wyndham Cook and Sir John Evans. In reality many of the items are very small, and a great joy of the volume is the quite magnificent photography. In opening this volume you will be unlocking the doors of a Kunstkammer and viewing a cabinet of rare marvels.' --
Martin E Henig, Honorary Visiting Professor of Archaeology, Institute of Archaeology, University College London; formerly Supernumerary Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford

'The three highly respected authors and the collector are to be congratulated on bringing this extensive private collection of engraved gems and cameos into the public arena. This catalogue will provide a visual feast for all those interested in the history of engraved gems and jewellery, and will be a foundation for specialist research for many years to come.' --
Jack Ogden, FSA, FGA, author of Jewellery (2006) and Ancient Jewellery (1996), co-author of The Art of Adornment (2013) and Greek Gold: Jewellery of the Classical World (1994)

Book Description Philip Wilson Publishers Ltd. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Guy Ladriere Collection of Gems and Rings, Diana Scarisbrick, John Boardman, Claudia Wagner, One of the world s finest assemblages of rings and gemstones, the Guy Ladriere Collection in Paris is of major importance both to the collector and the art historian. This handsome volume, written and compiled by three of the foremost experts on gems and semi-precious stones, is the first to catalogue, illustrate and describe all the pieces in the Collection. Comprising some three hundred items, and including a rich and varied mixture of cameos and intaglios, the Collection ranges from ancient artefacts originating in the Minoan period to gemstones and rings of the nineteenth century. It also boasts many medieval pieces, Christian crystal plaques and Lombardic stones with inscriptions. Of special interest are the prize pieces in the Collection. These include the famous rhinoceros, most probably depicting an identifiable animal (the celebrated Madrid rhinoceros, also known as the Marvel of Lisbon and taken from Portugal to Spain in 1583); Queen Elizabeth I crowned with the mythological lionskin of Hercules, and presented as the power to tame the forces of evil; and some remarkable and varied pairs of heads.".
