Encyclopaedia of British Pottery and Porcelain Marks
By Geoffrey A. Godden

This lavish encyclopaedia contains over six hundred and fifty plates-sixteen pages of them in full colour-illustrating more than a thousand documentary specimens of marked British pottery and porcelain of the period from 1700 to 1900.

The illustrations have been collected from a wide variety of sources-from local as well as national museums, from private collectors, and from antique dealers-and the majority of specimens have not previously been illustrated in any reference book. Indeed, many documentary examples illustrate the work of potters never before represented in a book.

A comprehensive glossary is linked with the illustrations to enhance the reader's appreciation of the various types of ceramic body and styles of decoration, and the bibliography provides an important guide to further detailed information.

All illustrations are accompanied by basic information on manufacturers, wares, period, form of mark, etc.

There is no doubt that this illustrated encyclopaedia will prove absolutely invaluable to the beginner, the general collector and the specialist alike.
