Does anyone know anything of the company Minerals Engineering based in Geneva, Switzerland during the late 1960s? The owner was possibly Brian Petrovic.

"Minerals Engineering" purchased the handwritten MS catalogue at the auction of the Duchess of Northumberland's mineral collection by Sotheby's in 1968 and I would really like to trace it to study the contents.

Kind Regards,

Tom

Peter, thanks for the tip. I've just had a look at their website and they look like a really interesting company. I will see if they have any ideas.
