The pottery of Tudor and Stuart London is a particularly rich field of study. Derived form a wide variety of sources and traditions, it yields a wealth of informaiton on manufacture, the function of different vessels, trade and economy. This book, which describes wares from the Surrey-Hampshire border, ranging from cooking pots and dishes to candlesticks and money-boxes, is the first of a series providing a detailed corpus of the major types of pottery used in the City of London during the 16th and 17th centuries. It draws upon both the extensive collection in the Museum of London and on reliably dated material from excavations. Illustrated with line drawings and photographs, this volume should be of interest to archaeologists, collectors and art historians.
