This is an older, used, hardbound reference book written by Joan Van Patten called The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Noritake Second Series. It was published in 1994 and is still an invaluable reference for collectors of Noritake china. It has 259 pages including an index by plate number. All of the items are photographed in color with descriptions and a price range relevant to the publishing date. There is a section with original ads and a section on back stamp identification. It was published by Collector Books, a Division of Schroeder Publishing Company. The prices may not be current but it is still an excellent reference guide with regards to rarity and documentation.
It measures about 8 3/4” by 11 ¼” by ¾” and is in good condition with minimal wear. The pages are basically clean and crisp and the spine is good. The cover shows very light scuff wear and the edges are solid.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
