Caughley & Worcester Porcelains 1775-1800
Godden, Geoffrey A.,
ISBN: 0257650229
Herbert Jenkins, London, 1969. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good Condition (ex-library)/Good. First Edition. Previous owner purchased the book from a library and has blacked out any library stamp, the rear paste down has been glued to the rear end page, and the dust jacket was price clipped, and then re-stickered by the publisher with a new price. The previous owner has also used marking pen to imitate a tint on the bottom edge of the text block, probably to cover over a library stamp. Apart from this damage, the book internally is clean and bright. Illustrated with colour plates, black-and-white photographs, and hand drawn copies of the marks and tools, the book is invaluable in settling the argument on whether one company was naughty, and made their "identification marks" intentionally similar to another company stop no matter that one company was in Wales, and the other in England.

Furnishing Art and Practice
Carney, Clive,
Oxford, Melbourne, 1950. First Edition
 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: June Carney. First Edition. 1.5 kg; XVI, 360 pages, indexed. The book is illustrated with numerous parts, and full page photographs in colour and, black-and-white as well as detailed line drawings, tables, charts etc. Each section of the book cavers an aspect of interior design, and offers a glossary, as well as an expository question and answer section. The book is written primarily for the amateurs so that it is desirable to create interest in everything that comes within the category of home furnishings. Grace and beauty are expressed in many forms, and fine wares and not the rightful possessions of any class or creed; but ignorance of what may be accomplished with limited resources is alone responsible for much distasteful furnishing. -- from the introduction, page 1. Pages 173 onwards are probably more of interest to the modern day antique dealer what with the hallmarks, the pottery marks on monograms, and depictions of the various styles of furniture through history.
