The Crown Jewels of England - Major-General Sir George Younghusband, Cyril Davenport 1919 - Cassell and Company, London - Number 1152 of 1400 limited copies ‘The Crown Jewels of England are historically and, indeed, intrinsically of a value impossible to compute. The Crown of England is older than any Crown in Europe, and is worn by a sovereign with more ancient a lineage than any of the Royal families of the Western world.

An exceptional copy of this large and authoritative work on England’s Crown Jewels, written by Younghusband when he was keeper of the jewel house in the Tower of London. Features detailed accounts of the crowns, sceptres, swords, and other regalia belonging to the coronation of England’s sovereigns, with portrait frontispiece of George V and 18 lavish full-colour plates, each with descriptive tissue guards. In the scarce dust jacket.
  Major-General of the British Indian Army, Sir George John Younghusband was appointed Keeper of the Jewel House at the Tower of London by King George V in 1917.

Cyril Davenport (1848-1941) was the Superintendent of Book Bindings at the British Museum, writing extensively on that subject as well as on topics as diverse as jewelry design, architecture, heraldry, illustrative reproductions and the English royal regalia.
