The Book Elves have a tradition of being hard on pots and plates- there
was the time they decided to "Class Up" the greenhouse by repotting all
the cacti in the 18th century Sevres; there was that regrettable incident
after too much eggnog last Christmas when they tried to find out how high
"too high" was when it came to stacking the Wegdwood dinnerware; and we're
all trying to forget last July 4th's infamous "Great Minton Shoot"...
But before they reduced 200 years worth of the potters art to several
bucketfuls of shiny shards that are being donated to the local arts center
to be made into a mosaic for the new bus station, the finished our latest
"BOOKS ON CERAMICS" is now available on our website or in printed format.
It features 270 books and catalogs on pottery, porcelain and related
topics, with highlights including-
-The catalog to Brother Thomas's first pottery exhibition.
-A scarce 1951 catalog of Masonic pottery.
-The uncommon original 1908 edition of Henry Mercer's guide to the mosaic
tiles at the Pennsylvania State Capitol.
-A beautifully illustrated 1900 survey of Egyptian ceramics by Henry
Wallis, limited to 200 copies..
-A massive biography of Lady Diana Beauclerk, 18th century Society Lady
and Wedgwood artist.
- and much, much more!
You can browse it on the web-
It is also available as a printed catalog.
