"Popular and Abridged Edition, with a Coloured Frontispiece and 30 Illustrations in black and white." Demand for the 1922 First Edition was so quick that this abridged edition was released as a remedy and result. The chapter on Ju Yao was rewritten, a few other textual additions were made, and the chapters on technique and miscellaneous factories and marks and inscriptions were omitted. The number of illustrations was cut from more than 100 to just 30.
