Congratulations on a fantastic book!

My copy arrived today and is all I hoped it would be and much more! An excellent addition to the first volume but more importantly a stand-alone volume on areas not touched on in the English language. The information contained is comprehensive, easy to read and covers most marks I see in my day job as an appraiser as well as covering some queries I get in my other role as curator at the Birmingham Assay Office. To my mind if you do not have access to both these volumes you have no right to call yourself an appraiser!

Keep up the good work and please stay in touch with any other information of forthcoming publications or talks in the U.K.

Kindest regards
Craig O’Donnell

When I think of the time, patience, and insane attention to detail that went into every single page of the book, I am absolutely stunned. And I can't help but think that people who handle precious metal items from those parts of the world will be completely beside themselves, finally having all this information in one place, presented so clearly.
