Over 350 cases, placed on 142 pages, are illustrated in colour within the text or on separate plates, the majority depicted actual size. Many are from my own collection (with some unique pieces), supplemented with images from Bonhams Auctioneers, London, and additional cases from the Harris Museum, Preston, UK.

4-languages subject dictionary (English-German-French-Danish), a comprehensive index, up-to-date bibliography and details of relevant websites, museums and auctioneers.
