Two scholars of Chinese ceramics have written on the late Sir Percival David's priceless collection, newly housed in London's British Musuem. Highlights of the collection are documented in this easy to read, informative, beautifully illustrated and very reasonable publication.

This book is useful as a small taster for what is in the Percival David collection, now in the British Museum. Serious students would be advised to look elsewhere, however.

I love visiting the British Museums collections and was very pleased to see and purchase this book. The images are lovely and the descriptions and history very informative. I just wish there were more pictures at different angles and perhaps some more close up detail shots, particularly of the very subtle incised patterns etc.

Excellent Overview 11 Sept. 2010
By Randolph - San Francisco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book published by the British Museum is a beautifully photographed, though brief, overview of this very important Chinese ceramic collection. The selection of material presented emphasizes the depth and importance of the collection of the Sir Percival David Collection that is now housed in the British Museum. One can only hope that a complete catalogue of this collection will be published in the near future.
Highlights of the Sir Percival David Collection 1 Oct. 2010
By Julian C - Published on Amazon.com

A light reading on what makes Sir Percival David the most famous and successful Chinese antique porcelain collector of our time. The quality of his collection is just incredible! Although this is a small catalog type of book, the quality of the pictures are among the best you can find for Chinese antique porcelains - the colors reflect the pieces very faithfully. You can really appreciate the beauty of these wonderful porcelain pieces through this book. I just wish the pictures can be bigger. However, I guess that won't be a light book any more.

Excellent sample guide to Chinese ceramics in the Percival David Collection. A perfect companion to the Imperial Taste catalogue of the collection.
