This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

You don't need to worry about upper and lower case in this search. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

Jade Amulets - Historical notes with coloured illustrations and interpretations of the most characteristic forms

Liberty and Co, London
8vo in plain stiff card covers, with faux vellum wrapper with tipped-on colour plate (as issued), 33pp on faux-vellum paper with tipped-in colour plates. The process for making this particular type of paper used oil to simulate the slightly transparent appearance of very thin vellum (or less expensive but still not cheap Japanese vellum). As a consequence the paper has become very tanned due to oxidation of the oil (this is essentially a sales catalogue and was not expected to be around nearly 100 years later). This book is one of a few titles printed by Liberty's to promote the their new Tudor building which was opened in 1924.
