Brepohl's "The Theory and Practice of Goldsmithing"


#1
 I've only just started to leaf through it, but from that brief
review, (and ignoring the   occasional minor typo that's still
there, Charles, in this newest edition) I have to say this is an
IMPORTANT book.  All of you gentle readers need to start budgeting
for this thing....  Its worth every penny.

I second Peter’s comment about this book! I got a copy of it
shortly after it was available, even read it cover to cover. Get it,
you won’t regret it!

Oh, Peter, don’t blame Charles for the typos, Tim’s the editor.

Hello Dave! You are right with Brepohls book.In all german speaking
countries it is simply referred to as’the Brepohl’.I own a very old
edition,already damaged from frequent use and I will get the updated
one,that’s for sure. Best regards Sigrid from Austria

yeah, I know. but Charles is the close enough buddy I can rib him
about it. The one I saw was funny. I’ts an illustration of the
threaded screw on type earring back. The word threaded is missing
it’s initial T, so it’s spelled “hreaded”. Now that’s not so bad,
but the italic typeface used, means that at first glance, I missed
that it was an H, but thought it looked like a B. So now we had
"breaded" posts. Made me wonder if they were baked or fried, and
whether they were better with, or without, garlic butter.

cheers
Peter

This book may be one of the most important “tools” in your studio.
In fact, I’d buy this book before I bought a rolling mill… because
once you’ve read this book, you will REALLY know how to use a
rolling mill!

Thanks to Charles Lewton-Brain for this excellent translation, and
also to Tim McCreight (we can forgive the typos :wink:
