The Victoria and Albert Museum in London said : Le "Fermoir" has just arrived. It is beautifully produced, and very carefully structured. You have done both makers and historians a huge service. The glossary will be extraordinarily useful. I know how hard you have worked on this, and what resources you have poured into it.

I received the volume and it is truly spectacular: rigorously academic on the one hand, and stunningly beautiful and entertaining on the other. Very, very well done.

I have been very impressed with what you have produced.
The book is magnificent, I love the illustrations, the overall look of quality in the photography, and paper quality. 
Not only does it look superb, it is without doubt an important and valuable source of information for both the specialist and for all those with an interest in jewellery. 
I predict that it will be a huge success, a must have book with great appeal. Congratulations on all your hard work.
