The Art of the Chinese Potter

£100.00

Product description

The is an ex-library copy of The Art of the Chinese Potter, by R. L. Hobson. It was printed in 1923.

This copy is bound in a library binding of blue canvas on board, with gilded title, author, and library call number. The title pages state this edition is strictly limited to 1500 copies, of which 500 are reserved for the United States of America, but the edition number has not been marked on this copy. The binding is in excellent condition, with very minimal bumping to the corners of the boards and the top of the spine. The binding is tight and there is no tanning or foxing to the pages. This copy came from the Greenwich Public Libraries Central Library, and there are several stamps on the title pages. Additionally, almost every blank page (the back of the printed photograph plate) has been stamped with the official Greenwich Public Libraries Central Library stamp. Some of the ink from these stamps has transferred to the protective cover sheet over the plate.
