"The first book to take into account the revolutionary discoveries made by the author when he was directing the recent excavations at the original factory site. A true account of Worcester porcelain is therefore now presented for the first time, with a wealth of new information of the greatest importance to all interested in the fine Worcester ware. Many new shapes are shown in mould or 'master' form, among them a particularly interesting tureen in what is probably the shape of a sawn and a group 'Cupid at Vulcan's Forge,' and Mr. Sandon has much to say about manufacturing processes. This text is supported by a magnificent range of over 150 illustrations from photographs taken especially for this work, many featuring spoiled 'wasters' excavated on the factory stie, with matching completed specimens." (from dj of Prager edition).
