W. B. HONEY - English Pottery and Porcelain

London England, Adam & Charles Black, 1949. 4th Edition, Binding: Cloth, Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Harback Hardback. From the Library of Royal Society of Arts Library with withdrawal sticker to inside cover and ex-library markings. Red cloth with gilt lettering. The purpose of this book is to provide a concise history of English ceramic art, that is to say, an account of the sequence of the various kinds of distinctively English wares, of their authorship or derivation, and more especially of their aesthetic charm - of those qualities in fact which make their study and collection worth while. Matters of purely archaeological interest have naturally been excluded, and space has not allowed the citation of authorities or a full discussion of many controversial matters; these have, however, been pointed out, as subjects of special concern to the collector, and the reasons for any departures from customary opinions have been briefly explained. Contents: Preface. List of Plates and Figures. Introduction. Earthenware and Stoneware to the End of the Eighteenth Century. English Porcelain of the Eighteenth Century. Nineteenth-Century Pottery and Porcelain. With seventy-two illustrations from photographs, twelve from drawings, and thirty marks. 271 pp.
