194 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H). Inscribed by author - "Best wishes to ..... from Elizabeth Collard". B&w photos, reproductions, marks. "This is the first book to be devoted exclusively to potters' views of Canada...The potters' views of Canada have a many-sided appeal, linking the world of artists, printmakers, and photographers to the ceramics industry...Covering the period from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the end of Queen Victoria's reign, this volume focuses chiefly on wares made for the dinner table or the washstand. All are earthenware, decorated by transfer printing, and produced by British potters. The scenes they depict range from the awesome falls at Niagara to early steamboats on the St Lawrence, from igloos in the Arctic to a governor's residence in New Brunswick. Elizabeth Collard traces the evolution of these wares, placing them in their historical setting and identifying the sources from which many of the views were derived. She also provides much detail on the English and Scottish potters and on the artists whose work they adapted to their own use." Previous owner's bookplate on free front endpaper, soft wrinkling to half-title page. Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling.
