Water damage on all pages plus smells like an ashtray.

Water damage on all pages plus smells like an ashtray. This book is not at all in good condition. Wish I could add a couple of pictures.

silversmithing instructor

Von Neumann was my instructor at the University of Illinois back in the 1970s. His book was not only extremely easy to understand, but he was one of the most inspiring teachers I ever had in my fine arts education. I made my wedding and engagement rings under his supervision (lost wax), and could not have been happier!!! Unfortunately, he died accidentally in the 1980s; but his book will remain the best textbook for silversmithing there is, in my opinion. His only updates were to have new photographs of student work every few years. I'm glad the other reviewer was able to find his favorite edition. And no, none of my work was ever photographed for the book.

Lots of detailed information for the novice and experienced.

I use this book often as a reference guide and it is one of my favorites. A well made softcover book also.

beginning jewelers need this book

When I first started making jewelry 7 years ago, this was one of the first books I bought. Intended as a textbook, it's a good, basic, easy to understand book for the novice jeweler
