The pictures are wonderful and plentiful as well as history of the styles. What's painfully lacking are examples and explanations of marks. Two and a half pages representing 27 marks with minimum information on any of them. I felt like it was a pretty book to look through, but a poor reference for those looking for information on how to buy Imari or Satsuma. I found no information at all about reproductions or modern pieces that have flooded the market and make it difficult for less than well informed buyers to get genuine pieces of antique Imari or Satsuma.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Myra Glover on April 7, 2008
Many collectors appreciate the extra knowledge on our favorite subjects and this book provides that and more. The exquisite photos of different and varied pieces of porcelain and pottery give the reader not only an appreciation of what he has but also information on items he loves but has no idea what they are. That said, after looking through the book I discovered I had a valuable pitcher that I had always treasured but didn't know if it was old, valuable, or special. I wish the book had given more on the difference between valuable and fake. I still find it hard to discern between the two.

This book is lavishly illustrated with high-quality photos. But ultimately it was a great disappointment to me. The "essays" provide little more information than could easily be found with a quick google search. There is no discussion at all of Japanese Genroku Period (ca. 1700) porcelain which was so treasured in Europe at the time, although there are numerous illustrations of Chinese 18th century examples(?) The text accompanying the illustrations provides self-evident descriptions such as "bowl with flying birds" but omits really useful information like dates. Maddening! The Imari section of the book shows examples of both Arita and Daishoji Imari (Kutani) wares but makes no distinction between them. Also,the page devoted to kiln marks is far inferior to what can be found on the Goteborg.com website for free.
