From Booklist:

This dictionary aims to include all the "essential marks to be recognized when studying or collecting antiques." However, no resource this small can be comprehensive. Major parts of this title include metalwork, furniture and tapestry, and ceramics marks. Within each section, English and European marks generally are in alphabetical order according to the factory or name. A short index for silver, pewter, and ceramics, respectively, is a further aid in locating information.

Originally compiled in 1962 and revised last in 1976, this edition has been updated according to today's tastes and attitudes. Little was deleted, but additions and corrections abound in most sections in light of new research. The metalwork section was expanded to include Edwardian and provincial silversmiths. The sections on marks of English furniture and European ceramics were rewritten. Also, more detail was added to the Chinese and Japanese ceramics marks. Finally, the bibliography now lists the most recent editions of acknowledged standard works.

Antique collectors are always looking for new information to help them identify an object and place it in the context of its origin so they can form a reasonable judgment of its value. Reasonably priced, the Dictionary of Marks will provide dealers and collectors with new information in this growing area of interest.
