This 333 page hardcover book is considered the definitive work on Meissen. Great information about the history of the Meissen company and the production of its wares. It is accompanied by dozens of photographs. Great detail about marks too. Published by Shiffer in 1984. It measures 12.2" x 9.2" x 1.2". Excellent as a history and reference - not as a price guide. For the more serious collector. It is in excellent condition with wear to the book jacket only.
