The Edward Arthur Metzger Gem Collection


English Language: English

Author: William A. BassettElise A. Skalwold

Illustrations by: Laura KazlowskiJeff Scovil


The breadth of the Edward Arthur Metzger collection is hinted at in the introduction to a new catalogue, which states that, while the late collector obviously had the resources to assemble a world-class collection, some of what he acquired �can be found in souvenir shops.� In his own brief essay that launches the book�s 400 pages, Metzger writes of communing with the inanimate�gauging its personality while examining its beauty as fate brings the two together�so, when he was called, he was called, not mindful of the price tag.

The Edward Arthur Metzger Gem Collection, by William Bassett and Elise Skalwold, is the first of a two-part project that has been in preparation since 2008. The present volume documents the collection�s splendid elements with equally splendid photographs by Jeffrey Scovil.
