by Godden, Geoffrey A.
London: Barrie & Jenkins, 1982. Hardbound. VG. Blue cloth with black, color-illustrated dust jacket. 375 pp., 25 color and 450+ bw plates. "This copiously illustrated and deeply researched book fills the last great void in British ceramic literature, telling the story of the one remaining major eighteenth- and nineteenth-century English porcelain factory. Like its author's previous volumes on Caughley, Coalport and Minton, it will take its place as a standard work of reference for dealers, collectors, auctioneers and all concerned with the appreciation and identification of English ceramics. ... The long and fascinating story is told with the help of a mass of original factory records. The resulting account probably reflects the organisation of other contemporary potteries, so that this book will prove of wide interest beyond its immediate subject." (dj) Includes an appendix, selected bibliography and substantial index. (Inventory #: 106164)
