Thanks to this book, you will learn all about the difference between pottery and porcelain, the basic terms, the "development of different styles in English ceramics", "as well as the most important foreign influences, in particular that of the Orient", and "the various processes that go to making the finished products". Please read the full introduction on the book's paper jacket (5th photo).
Colour and black and white pictures and miscellaneous illustrations complete the great text of this great guide, a must for all collectors of English pottery and ceramics.
Hardback with paper jacket. The hardback is in very good condition, except a small damage on the inside of the cover (please see 8th picture). The book has spots on pages 68 and 69 (please see last two pictures). The paper jacket is in good condition but shows some traces of age: yellow traces that make it look a bit dirty, and minor wear on the top.
