George F. Kunz, mineralogist and mineral collector
We have updated the Kunz bibliography published by John Sinkankas in his notable work Gemology: an Annotated Bibliography. The Library compiled the information from various sources, including work undertaken by Yvonne Markowitz, Jewellery Curator at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. Now it is your turn. We need your assistance to add new items to the list as well as to provide some of the missing details such as page numbers. Please contact us and we will update the bibliography as needed
While at Tiffany’s, George Kunz created a set of books for Tiffany and Co. to give each year to its customers: Natal Stones: Sentiments and Superstitions connected [associated] with Precious Stones. There are editions dating from 1891 until 1931. We believe that there are 31 editions with total page numbers ranging from 17 to 35. Since there is some confusion on editions, dates, titles and page numbers, we would like help with creating an accurate list of these. For ease of viewing, we have grouped them together in the bibliography included here.
