Godden's Guide to English Porcelain - Geoffrey GoddenHart-Davis MacGibbon, 1978, Hardback ..
Condition: Very Good. Some marks to the boards and a small scuff to the spine at the title plate. Text complete, clean and tight.
Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the preface: “This book sets out to provide a simple, straightforward and I trust reliable guide to English porcelains. It examines the essential but so often neglected points concerning the introduction of porcelain into the British Isles and its subsequent development. The methods of manufacture and the styles of decoration arc explained without getting tied up in technicalities, and I analyse the reasons why we admire one pot and reject another. In other words the aim is to set some standards. I hope to steer the reader clear of the many pitfalls that lie in the path of the collector, to cover many points not mentioned in other books on ceramics, and to open the reader’s eyes to the pleasures that await an inquisitive new collector.”
