American Art Pottery

By Rago, David

NY: Knickerbocker, 1997. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Large format, and well made hardcover. Oddly though I do not see this as likely a book club or reprint, the jacket is unpriced and my reference has no edition information. No debossing mark is present. Dust jacket has a bit of scuff and edgewear. Prettily done, huge fotos and well-informed essays seem to be in play here. I glanced at the section on Van Briggle (the only one I know anything of) and found it discussed in some detail. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

By Coins of Alexanders Successors in the East (Bactria, Ariana and India)

Chicago: Argonaut, 1969. Book. Fair+. Hardcover. 4th Edition. Apparently a facsimile reprint of the 1884 original. Sound and unmarked Hardcover with notable flaw. the First several pages have a char/browning spot the travels thru them diminishing as it progresses. since there is no crispness associated with it, one wonders if it might be a small stain of some kind. In any case the book's binding is tight so should offer decades of good use. Boards clean and lettering on spine bright. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.
