This book presents and explores the Waddesdon Bequest, the name given to the Kunstkammer or cabinet collection of Renaissance treasures which was bequeathed to the British Museum by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, MP in 1898.

It unlocks the history of this collection through the exploration of some of its greatest treasures : masterpieces of goldsmiths' work in silver; jewelry; hardstones and engraved rock crystal; microcarvings in boxwood, painted enamel, ceramic and glass; arms and armor and exotic 'curosities' incorporating ostrich eggs, Seychelles nut, amber or nautilus shell.
