Jewelers’ Circular and Horological Review: a Chronological Index of Digitized Volumes

Reference Info Index | Glossopedia  ]


If you enjoy vintage pens and their history, then you are no stranger to researching obscure makes or narrowing down time lines or company histories. Having a chronologial directory of your research material makes it easier to trace the information you are seeking without having to wade through the same information over and over. As more and more publications are being digitized, it is becoming much easier to be a history sleuth. I do much of my research though Google Books, the Hathi Trust, and Archive.org, and I have produced this index to make your research easier and more enjoyable.

Jewelers’ Circular

Obviously, the Jewelers’ Circular was not focused on fountain pens. But, like the stationery trade of the time, the jewelry trade also included the sale of pens, often ornately decorated metal ones, and thus this publication has information to offer (frequently in the form of advertisements) to the fountain pen sleuth.

My thanks to Mike Kernnedy, David Nishimura, and George Kovalenko, who have all gone before me in the indexing of publications. Their work was the inspiration that drove me to index the Jewelers’ Circular.
