London, Benn, 1923 (first edition, second impression).
Quarto, xvi, 240 pages plus 59 pages of plates (many full page, and 9 in colour), each with a captioned tissue-guard.
Gilt-decorated buckram lightly marked; top edge a little foxed; front flyleaf a little offset; an excellent copy.
The first impression was a numbered limited edition of 1500 copies; the second impression comprised only 500 unnumbered copies. Apart from the different statements of limitation, the impressions appear to be identical. Loosely inserted is a four-page publisher's catalogue of books of kindred interest. The author was Keeper of the Department of Ceramics and Ethnography at the British Museum.
