The art of the Chinese potter : an illustrated survey by R. L Hobson( Book )

7 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before being written, this book had one aim: "to furnish collectors with a series of representations of some of the finest examples (of china) which are known to exist." To accomplish this goal some 180 pieces of china were carefully photographed and provided with descriptive captions. This book quickly became the standard and, after 60 years of limited publication, is finally accessible to every collector. These examples chronicle increasingly complex techniques and changing fashion in form and color. They depict: Greek amphrae, ewers, deities, dragons, burial guards, etc. all delicately modeled and glazed with 192 black & white and color illustrations.--Amazon.com
