DISCUSSION:

“This book presents magnificent artifacts collected by an aristocratic family of fabulous wealth. It shows goldsmith's work and jewelry of extraordinary quality, and a number of decorations and commemorative medals, dating mostly from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. These include some of the finest creations of their time, by artists such as Hans Petzolt of Nuremberg and Augsburg's Drentwett family, as well as renowned Hungarian goldsmiths of the Mannerist and Baroque era. The book explains the more important phases in the evolution and growth of this outstanding collection. The Esterhazy treasures, as well as the Esterhazy family themselves, have an extraordinary history, including tragic losses and damage through bombing in 1945. Since then, many of the damaged pieces have been ‘brought back to life' after years of meticulous restoration. The book includes archive photographs of those pieces beyond repair. Many pieces in the Esterhazy collection and the Esterhazy themselves are inextricably linked at numerous points to many important developments in the political and diplomatic history of Europe. No other book in English documents this unique collection.”

DESCRIPTION:

Softcover. 8”x10”, 128 pages, 110 color illustrations.

CONDITION NOTES:

Minor wear, but over all in fine, clean condition.

OVERSEAS BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: Our International shipping charges are based on the weight, when boxed for shipping, of each book -please check the postage chart for the cost of shipping to your country. We offer “combined shipping charges” for orders for more than one book –this often means the shipping cost for the books is less than it would have been if they had been purchased and shipped one at a time, so please ask us for a shipping quote if you are thinking about buying more than one book. Thanks!

INSURANCE??? As a seller we take responsibility for properly packing and delivering your purchase safely to you. You do not have to spend extra for insurance to guarantee that.

RETURNS: We want you to be completely satisfied- anything is returnable for any reason at all within 14 days of receipt; we do ask that you notify us that you are returning it.

OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE:

-We always welcome orders from customers outside the United States. The “Free Shipping” marker found on many of our books only applies to shipping within the United States –we wish we could afford to offer free overseas shipping, but we cannot. Please use the “Shipping & Payments” tab (above) to check the cost of shipping. We charge actual shipping based on weight, so sometimes large, heavy, inexpensive books can actually cost more to ship than the book itself costs –I know that seems odd, but the shipping cost is based on the actual weight of the book, not its selling price. If you have any questions, please use the "Ask Us a Question" button before you buy the book.

-Import duties, taxes and related import charges added by your country are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – please do not confuse them for additional shipping charges, which we never impose. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as ‘gifts’ to avoid import duties, as this is illegal in most countries.
