Descrizione libro Quaker Press, c.1974, 1974. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Used: Very Good. Red Leatherette boards with gold-gilt decoration, lettering has minor wear, binding tight, internally clean, endpages ae age-toned. 476p. index. bibliography. Second and best edition. Expanded from the 1965 edition. Recommended by the Orders and Medals Society of America: "Another aging book, but one that has not yet been supplanted. Werlich attempted, as his title suggests, a survey of everybody?s orders and decorations and, in a fashion unusual for the age in which he was writing, he did a decent job of accomplishing his goal. While the information is often sketchy (and sometimes wrong) and the illustrations are not up to modern standards, this remains an important book. It will, if you can find it, cost you a good part of what a good medal will cost, but Werlich?s niche has not been filled." Over 1000 illustrations in black & white, some in color.
