Volume Two of the Definitive Work
on 20 March 2003
At the time of writing this was rated 3 stars. Why? As a serious long term collector of Blue & White, I have to say that this & Volume 1 are unarguably the definitve texts, & they clearly supersede all the earlier (& later) error ridden lightweight competetors.
Volume 1 is the main work; this work (Vol. 2) is merely a slimmer updating. It is, as the title says, a properly researched reference dictionary (lavishly illustrated), not a chatty fireside book.
The only omissions (deliberate) are the American views, such as those made by Stubbs with the Spread Eagle Border etc., for which you'll have to turn to "Arman" or other early American publications.
In summary;- a first class extension to Volume 1, and must rate 5 stars. Essential reference for any serious collector.
