Japanese Porcelain is the first comprehensive book on the subject to have been published in the west. It traces the history of the important kilns and potters and outlines the many theories and traditions about the various wares that exist in Japan and elsewhere, discussing in detail such controversial matters as the identification of Ko Kutani porcelain. It both describes the wares themselves and assesses their great artistic merit.
