Recipes provide the documentary history of the pigment beginning with the earliest known through to 1837, the date of George Field's, Chromatography, to make up a history of each pigment.

  • A Documentary Dictionary of Historical Pigments bringing together all the pigments included in the series of Colour Palettes, by century.
