First Edition King Penguin Hardback - Semi-Precious Stones, By N.Wooster - Printed in Middlesex, 1952

Wonderful 16 x colored plates by Arthur Smith, including Lapis Lazuli, Cairngorm Quartz, Amethyst, Malachite, Turquoise and Blue John.

Condition: Good to very good vintage condition, the spine is very worn with loss to the card edging, plus wear to the edges and corners of the covers - but the pages are really nice with wonderful clean, crease-free illustrations at the end of the book, ideal for framing.

7 1/4" in. x W  5" in. x D 0.5" in.
