Great book, with lots of useful information. Writer David Battie, together with Michael Turner, will be well known to viewers of the British 'Antiques Road Show'. The book is a publication from the 'Antique Collectors Club' There is a comprehensive coverage of many categories including, jugs and loving cups, commemorative ware, figures, animals, plates and dishes. Plus the history of Staffordshire and Wedgewood, Jasper and Basalt. Lists of dates and Factories, and calendar of useful people and events. A great read. Book in good condition with dust cover, plus plastic protector (easy to remove) only damage is a scuff at the very top, main damage to plastic, tiny tear in dust jacket, and slight dent in hard cover. Trying to be honest here!
