David R. M. Gaimster con This Blessed Plot, This Earth - A: English Pottery Studies in Honour of Jonathan Horne
Horne was both an internationally renowned scholar and a successful dealer in old British pottery. The high esteem in which he was held is evident in the quality of the over thirty essays that have been collected in his honour for this handsome book. Although each essay focuses on a particular interest, put together they make a useful survey of current research into English pottery. Subjects covered include stoneware, delftware, tiles, archaeology, and museum collections and each of the essays are significantly enhanced by some excellent colour photographs. 255 pages, colour illustrations; 27 cm.
