This is an out-of-print book that is in itself a collectible and worth considerably more than its original cost of $24.95 when published in 1998 and issued again in 2001 with updated values!
It is a beautifully executed book by Mary Frank Gaston who has authored so many fine books (Limoges expert too). This edition features R.S., E.S., O.S., and C.S. porcelain. It includes a very useful section on hallmarks 768 items shown!
It is in absolutely fine, new condition. If you are not already aware, we carried quite a selection of new books on collectibles and antiques at our brick and mortar shop which is now closed. We had multiples of this book and this is the last one left.
It is hardcovered and measures 11.4 x 8.8 x 0.9 inches. Most reviews rated it excellent as a reference and here is an example of one:
"As a new collector of R.S. Prussia I found this book to be an excellent reference. It's detailed description and beautiful pictures of the different molds, decorations and marks was very helpful. I know there are a lot of "fake" pieces on the market and this book is proving to be an invaluable guide for me. The history was very interesting also."
