Catalogue of the Glaisher Collection of Pottery & Porcelain: In the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge, Volume 1
By Bernard Rackham

This edition is limited to 1,000 numbered copies. This copy is No. 256

The Catalogue of the Glaisher Collection was originally published in 1935 and was limited to 350 copies of the two volume sets; the copies now command comfortably into four figures. Why is it that a ceramics catalogue over fifty years old can command such respect?

The answer is that the Glaisher Collection is one of the great ceramic collections of the world, assembled at a time when fine quality pieces were more readily available. Dr J.W.L. Glaisher, Fellow of Trinity, was a collector of great taste and discrimination who sought out the best specimens. The Catalogue of the Glaisher Collection is one of, if not, the most sought after catalogue in the world of ceramics.

The collection is strongest in English lead-glazed wares, stonewares and delft wares of the pre-industrial age, but the Continental section com prises fine examples of Spanish and Italian maiolica, French and German faience, delft, German stoneware and peasant pottery from Switzerland and other parts of Central Europe.
