5.0 out of 5 stars Massive update ( Amazon Screwup Again, Wrong Book Pictured), 18 May 2014

This review is from: Guide to Mason's China and the Ironstone Wares (Hardcover)
First off, the book illustrated above is the third edition but the date of publication for the book I am reviewing is 1995 as in second edition. After twenty similar mistakes and a difficult correction process I have given up when amazon get it wrong.
The format is larger and there are one hundred and fifty more pages than "Masons Patent Ironstone China" which was the basis for this book. Godden brings more information to light but more importantly adds extra specimens in the sections pictured. Text is all very well but pictures of the items and patterns are the meat of all book on antiques, especially ceramics.
I bought the first book as published in the Faber Monograph series when it was issued and was perfectly content until this edition arrived. There is so much extra content that to call it an update does not do it justice. Any fan of Masons ironstone and other ironstone producers needs a copy of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good informative book, 9 Jan. 2012
By 
This book is ideal for Masons devotees and will add
to a bookshelf of informative books as it does not stand
alone as a reference book.
