[Looking4] Gem carving book

I’m looking for a copy of Henry Hunt’s “American Lapidary: Designing the Carved Gemstone” - it seems to be out of print and I am taking a
gem carving class April 1st at Metalwerx. Any suggestions? Thanks,
Orchid is the best.

Mary, Please go to graves company
[ http://www.ganoksin.com/gnkurl/97 ] and look under books for items
22-111 and 22-114.

Mary…that is a good connection. The two books mentioned are both
good. I happen to have the one with the green cover, but the cover is
tan and it is signed by Henry Hunt and says “Happy Carving”. If you
can get it for $25.00 wonderful. Recently I needed an old out of
print book - the store did find it but cost me $50.00.

I like to use http://www.ganoksin.com/gnkurl/bookfinder to look for
out of print books I checked the site & 4 came up on Amazon - all
pricey though (from$105- $150)

Good luck!
