APOSTLE SPOONS by Charles G Rupert
A classic book almost solely devoted to apostle spoons, and despite its age still remarkably up to date. The book covers the development of the apostle spoon, recognition of the apostles and their associated emblems, extant sets of spoons and plenty of black and white plates. The out-of-date values, such as the 12-spoon Frith Set of 1592, which sold for £620 in 1920, are food for fantasy!
A minor criticism is the typical academic nature of such a book from this period and therefore its subsequent difficult readability, however, it should be remembered that a book such as this will increase in value as well being a useful source of reference.
