"This account of the potting industry in North Staffordshire will be of interest chiefly to the people of North Staffordshire. They and their fathers before them have grown up with, lived with, made and developed the English pottery trade. The pot-bank and the shard ruck are, to them, as familiar, and as full of old associations, as the cow shed to the countryman or the nets along the links to the fishing population. To them any history of the development of their industry will be welcome. But potting is such a specialized industry, so confined to and associated with North Staffordshire, that it is possible to study very clearly in the case of this industry the cause of its localization, and its gradual change from a home to a factory business." (preface) And so on. The New York printing of this book is uncommon. (Inventory #: 105539)
