5.0 out of 5 stars A valuable reference book 16 Jun 2000
By Donna Reagan - Published on
This is a valuable and worthy reference book for anyone who wants to know more about Wedgwood and the contemporary manufacturers of the period. The color plates and black and white pictures provide assistance in identifying all types of dry-bodied english stoneware. During the period there were numerous manufacturers duplicating the same type of designs. This book provides a wonderful guide for collectors and antique dealers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edwards & Hampson together makes sense. 14 Feb 2001
By Jonathan Rickard - Published on
Rodney Hampson has been a key source of information about the history of the Staffordshire pottery industry for authors and scholars, so it's nice to see him partnering with Diana Edwards on a subject that's been largely overlooked. The results are mostly positive. There is a bit too much emphasis on Wedgwood at the expense of the lesser-known manufacturers. Photography is only so-so. The lighting of engine-turned and press-molded items is too flat, making it difficult to see the detail that most fully describes the objects.. In general, a welcome addition to the literature of ceramics and another worthwhile effort from the Antique Collectors' Club.
