Jewels and Gems is a children's book written with the aim of entertaining and inspiring children in the enchanting world of gems and precious stones. A wonderful book full of lovely pictures and interesting text, Jewels and Gems is a great alternative to normal bedtime reading and constitutes a wonderful addition to any collection of antiquarian children's literature. Lucile Saunders McDonald (1898 - 1992) was journalist, historian and author of children's books, most famous for Dick and the Spice Cupboard and The Giant with Four Arms. She was the first woman on a New York City writing desk and the first woman copy editor in the Pacific Northwest, who co-founded the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. This scarce antiquarian book has been chosen for modern republican due to its literary value, and is republished here with pride complete with a new introduction to the topic.
