TWO BOOKS ON THE CROWN JEWELS OF EUROPE
TWINING, LORD. A HISTORY OF THE CROWN JEWELS OF EUROPE
London: B.T. Batsford Ltd., 1960. 707pp.
This complete work details the crown jewels alphabetically from Austria to Yugoslavia. Sinkankas states "Apparently only a few copies were printed as is evidenced by the sustained, strong demand for copies in the antiquarian market." In April 1996 Christie's auctioned a similar copy for $1400.
MICHAEL, PRINCE OF GREECE. CROWN JEWELS OF EUROPE
New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1983. 144pp.
This book is personally signed by the Prince. (2)
