Godden's New Guide to English Porcelain by Geoffrey Godden

Geoffrey Godden shares a wealth of advice and experience, gained in over 50 years of collecting and dealing in British porcelain.

This book is a welcome addition to any collector's library as it includes the most up-to-date research plus good coverage of the major later factories, ceramic bodies, and styles. Written in a straightforward and accessible style and accompanied by over 270 colour illustrations, it will be invaluable for the novice collector, and will be equally useful to those more experienced in the field.
