This new edition of Eric Yates-Owen and Robert Fournier's classic book on British studio potters' marks contains new and revised entries for many potters, with up-to-date information about the artists' styles, marks and addresses. Entries are arranged alphabetically, with each entry giving biographical data, information on the type of ceramics produced, the location of the pottery and dates indicating when marks have changed, as well as images of the different marks used. Three useful indexes enable the reader to search by mark rather than maker, in various categories such as creatures, monograms and signs. Revised by expert collector James Hazlewood, British Studio Potters' Marks, third edition, is the essential reference guide for collectors of British studio pottery.

The first ever book to provide a comprehensive overview of British pottery, The Potter's Arttraces this remarkable history of pottery all the way from the rudimentary pots of the Middle Ages to the sophisticated art of today's studio potters. Beginning with the peasant potter, Garth Clark moves on to describe the development of style and fashion under the notorious Josiah Wedgwood. He also examines the work of the artist-potters William De Morgan and the Martin brothers, and the studio potters Bernard Leach and Lucie Rie. Focusing particularly on the distinctly human angle to the craft, the author brings the potters to life by describing their working conditions, lifestyles and characters. For all collectors and potters, this is an indispensable survey which sheds new light on the history of British pottery. For anyone with a sense of aestheticism or a general interest in the arts, it is an absorbing introduction to perhaps the most fundamental artistic medium in the history of civilization.

In 1963, John Fowles won international recognition with The Collector, his first published novel. In the years following—with the publication of The Magus, The French Lieutenant’s Woman, The Ebony Tower, and his other critically acclaimed works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry—Fowles took his place among the most innovative and important English novelists of our time. Now, with this first volume of his journals, which covers the years from 1949 to 1965, we see revealed not only the creative development of a great writer but also the deep connection between Fowles’s autobiographical experience and his literary inspiration. Commencing in Fowles’s final year at Oxford, the journals in this volume chronicle the years he spent as a university lecturer in France; his experiences teaching school on the Greek island of Spetsai (which would inspire The Magus) and his love affair there with the married woman who would later become his first wife; and his return to England and his ongoing struggle to achieve literary success. It is an account of a life lived in total engagement with the world; although Fowles the novelist takes center stage, we see as well Fowles the nascent poet and critic, ornithologist and gardener, passionate naturalist and traveler, cinephile and collector of old books. Soon after he fell in love with his first wife, Elizabeth, Fowles wrote in his journal, “She has asked me not to write about her in here. But I could not not write, loving her as I do. . . . What else I betrayed, I could not betray this diary.” It is that determined, unsparing honesty and forthrightness that imbues these journals with all the emotional power and narrative complexity of his novels. They are a revelation of both the man and the artist.
