First edition, 1982. Hardback. 375pp. Dust jacket. This copiously illustrated and deeply researched book fills a void in British ceramic literature, telling the story of this major eighteenth and nineteenth century English porcelain factory. The long and fascinating story is told with the help of a mass of original factory records and the resulting account probably reflects the organisation of other contemporary potteries, so this book will prove of interest beyond its immediate subject. The chronological account of the Chamberlain factory and its output, superbly illustrated by photographs in the text, is followed by a descriptive list of Chamberlain decorators and a comprehensive list of the thousands of patterns introduced by the fatcory. A final chapter is devoted to the types of Chamberlain decorative wares in all their great variety. An Appendix contains a contemporary account of the working of the factory in the nineteenth century. Over 450 black & white and 25 colour photogaphs. Book in very good condition. But for some spotting to the upper edge of the text block this would be a near fine copy. Dust jacket near fine and unclipped.
