About This Item

Faber and Faber Limited, London and Heirloom & Howard Limited, England Book. Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. English text.; Hardcover (with dust jacket); VOLUME 1: published by Faber and Faber, London, 1974, ISBN: 0571098118, 23 x 29 cm, 4.2 kg, 1034 pages with black-and-white illustrations and a few in colour.; Used books with signs of wear on the dust jacket. Interior in very good condition. The dust jackets are now protected with clearcovers.; OUT OF PRINT.; The major part of David Howard's book consists of a dictionary of armorial services painted in China for the British market between 1695 and 1820. Pieces of nearly 2,000 services are illustrated by styles chronologically, the arms blazoned and the familes described; and in all 2900 services are recorded. Perhaps the greatest value of the book to the collector lies in its extensive analyses of this ware.; VOLUME 2: published by Heirloom & Howard Limited, England, 2003, ISBN: 0954438906, 23.5 x 30.3 cm; 4.3 kg; 904 pages with 1,880 colour illustrations, 1,500 armorial services described.; Used book with signs of wear on the dust jacket and exterior text block. Interior in very good condition. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; The material in Chinese Armorial Porcelain II is almost entirely additional to the first volume, containing a new introduction and four new chapters on aspects of the China Trade. All the appendices are revised and extended and the index of mottoes and index of services cover both volumes (the later containing an alphabetical list of over 4,000 services - more than 3,320 illustrated and 680 unillustrated - all made for the British and American market). This is an essential companion for those who own the first volume but this book certainly stands on its own and, as Garter King of Arms writes in the foreword, 'is an astounding work - destined to be a major reference source in the future'..
