73 pp text, 96 black and white illustrations. "The chapter "Brief Lives", with its 'ex cathedra' identification for the first time of the makers of some of the most important pieces of Caroline plate, is one of the greatest contributions to knowledge of the period for many years, the survey of the Company's activities and the relationship between sovereign and goldsmiths from the days of the Restoration must widen our understanding of the time. Mr. Oman's selection for his illustrations of many pieces in public possession outside the great national museums has, as he explains, been deliberately made to lead the reader to a wider realization of the treasures of the period"
