  • Our ref:

The bood is in very good condition for its age. The binding is still sound and tight, alittle wrinkling to the cloth at the top and bottom of the spine. Pages slightly tanned - most noticeable on the end papers. This is described as a 'New and Cheaper Edition'. The first edition was 1875. This edition is undated. Mrs Bury Palliser (1805 - 1875) also wrote about lace making. This little pocket book (approx 4.5' by 6.5") offers a guide to china marks and is described in its preface as: 'A portable book of marks and mongrams is a necessary complement to the extensive ceramic works of the present day. In this little volume, care has been taken not to assign a locality to marks except upon unquestionable authority. It is better to raise doubt than to sow error. The one time and research may dispel; the other it is impossible to eradicate when once allowed to take root."
  • Our price: £3.50
