South Brunswick and New York: A. S. Barnes and Company, 1978. Hardcover. VG- (Some scuffs to dj, otherwise nice.). Siena buckram, black & color illus. dust jacket, 167 pp., BW and color illus. "The first fully comprehensive treatment of the spattered and sponged wares popularly assumed to be Pennsylvania Dutch but actually limited neither to the Dutchland nor to the United States. ... Research for [this book] opened up unexpected avenues of exploration for the authors -- many of them far removed from the Pennsylvania Dutchland. A number of collections of Canadian ceramics, previously unknown or unregarded in the United States, gradually assumed significance; specimens brought back by collector-friends traveling in Scotland and Wales were obviously closely related to pieces long thought to be natively American; spattered or sponged items were picked up or reported in Greece, Iran, and West Africa. Whatever other concerns developed, it was clear that the original dissemination of spatterware was far from being parochial. ... A mandatory source for all interested in the subject." (dj).
