The Wedgwood Company stands high in the annals of pottery as a fine art both because of the quality and variety of its wares and because of the influence of the vast Wedgwood family, which maintained an interest in the pottery for over two centuries. This book surveys the entire Wedgwood line from its founding in 1759 to the present with good descriptions of styles and processes. When compared with other books published for collectors of Wedgwood, two aspects of this guide stand out: the abundance of excellent color photographs throughout the book and the numerous boxed biographical vignettes of persons connected with the Wedgwood firm. Appendixes list marks; addresses of clubs, museums, and dealers; and a current price list. An excellent book on a popular subject, Wedgwood is recommended particularly for public library collections.
