Pearls And Pearling

This book was published in 1913.PREFACE. A FEW years ago I temporarily set aside my work as a salesman to hunt for pearls on the Illinois River. The work in the pure air and sunshine ; and the evei present hope of finding valuable pearls, were so fascinat- ing I did not like to leave the occupation, so I continued with the work and studied most of the subjects relating to it. Desiring to prepare for the business in a very thor- ough manner I tried to purchase a book upon the sub- ject, but none was printed. There has been a general demand for information on pearl hunting and, at the request of the Fur News Publishing Company, I have written .this book, which I hope will prove of value to my fellow-men. It is intended especially for pearl hunters and those who contemplate entering the profession, although I shall be pleased if it is of interest to jewelers and lovers of pearls in general. My aim has been to explain all parts of the work so thoroughly that one entirely unacquainted will after read- ing this book, not only understand the methods and ap- pliances, but be able to hunt for pearls successfully. Iearnestly hope that all who read this book may be so fortunate as to find valuable pearls. I am pleased to thank the friends who have supplied photographs, and am especially grateful to Messrs. Combes & Van Roden, of Philadelphia, for the loan of the original photographs of members of the English nobility. HERBERT H. VERTREES. Pittsfield, Illinois, May 23, 1913.
