This is a great book for anyone interested in identifying old pieces of porcelain, pottery or clay items.

This is not a book filled with photographs but the line drawings of the marks are plentiful and the text is very informative. There are 634 pages including the index. The book has a 1988 copyright by the author and it was published by Collector Books, a Division of Schroeder Publishing Company. It is an excellent reference guide for identification and documentation.

The shiny hardcover shows minimal scuff wear and edge and corner wear. The previous owners name on the Contents page has been blacked out.
