KING, C.W. THE NATURAL HISTORY, ANCIENT AND MODERN, OF PRECIOUS STONES AND GEMS, AND OF THE PRECIOUS METALS
London: Bell and Daldy, 1865. 442pp.

King attempts in this book, as he states in his preface, to provide the average lay person who may own a gem, interesting information on it. It is the A to Z of gemology, A for Achates, Agate to Z for Zmilampis, Cat's Eye. Few well-preserved copies exist due to poor original bindings by the publisher. This book is in exceptional condition.
