Good Source for Further Research,
This review is from: English Decorative Ceramics (Paperback)
The book is a directory of the artistic side of ceramics from 1875 to 1940 says the blurb on the back. While accurate, this understates the value of the book. I have deducted a star because the black and whie illusrations would combine to make a turgid collection but the colour plates compensate somewhat. Forty major potteries covered but where the book shines out is the references to source material. I have seen some excellent bibliograpys but this book even lists magazine articles to help the reader in their researches.
Now out of date, this is a good groundwork for its subject.
