Pocket editions Jackson's Hallmarks is based on the new, revised edition of Jackson's Silver & Gold Marks of England, Scotland and Ireland, published in 1989.

Ian Pickford, the editor, has selected over 1,000 makers whose work is of especial interest: some because they made fine work that is undervalued, others because they are of historical interest; a few because their work should be avoided. Complete cycles of silver marks are given for all the important assay offices, with variations shown for gold, platinum, Britannia standard, import marks, etc. The pocket edition has been updated to 1991 to include current assay marks. This is the most accurate, complete and up to date guide on the market.

Ian Pickford was born and educated in London and is a freeman of both the Worshipful company of Goldsmiths and the City of London. He is the author of Silver flatware: English, Irish and Scottish, 1660-1980, and editor of Jackson's Silver and Gold marks of England, Scotland and Ireland, both published by the Antique Collectors Club. He lectures extensively for NADFAS (National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies) and is a popular member of the Antiques Roadshow team.
