You are welcome.

But i bear no merit as it is JOSE who first found it on the net!

The book, i feel, is awesome and quite exhaustive!!

Thank you Alaa eddine Segid ( my goodness  so long to greet you.) I have downloaded this wonderful book you so skilfully made  possible for us to do so.  Unfortunately I read very little french, love the clarity how the pieces have been photographed  and how they were (are ) worn.  I know of course, the silver pieces and  but all the deeper in the bush items, are wonderful and now seen how they are worn. A good book to have as a reference.  Very alert of you.

Gr. Ingrid (just short and simple)
