Staffordshire Portrait Figures

£14.99

Product description

When this book was first published in 1970 it provided precisely what the collector of Staffordshire portrait figures had long required: an extensive photographic record of the 1,500 or so portrait figures which were produced in the nineteenth century and which encapsulate so much of the history of Victorian England. As a collecting subject these figures are popular throughout the English speaking world and beyond while the increases in prices being recorded confirm the continued interest.;This reprint is the revised edition of the standard work affectionately known as 'Pugh'. While it is based on the 1981 revised edition and carefully follows the system of reference numbering, the text has been moved so that the pictures and captions are now close together. Accordingly, the book is easier to use. The new colour photographs were all specifically taken for this edition at the City Museum and Art Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent where the bulk of Surgeon Rear-Admiral Pugh's collection is now housed. The book is also invaluable because of the wide range of practical information it contains on such collecting pitfalls as forgeries, fakes, reproductions and repairs.

This copy appears to be clean and free from damage apart from some grey discoloration to the bottoms of the closed pages and folding of the top of the dust jacket. The jacket is protected with poorly-fitting clear plastic.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
