Just an FYI, this book was recommended to me by someone with many years of cutting experience. I got a used copy for about ten dollars. Just bringing it to your attention as a resource.

Thanks Ezra. I noticed many copies available on Amazon at that price. The book intrigues me as well.

I have read the book and was acquainted with Eric. I think it is a good history of the diamond trade, but is very sketchy on the subject of diamond cutting. Basil Watermeyer's book is much better for that purpose.
