The Transferware Recorder Number Four – Selected Patterns from Literature
Authored by Dick Henrywood, this volume is a first foray away from British views, concentrating this time on patterns related to literature. It covers prose, poetry, novels, plays, and their authors, with Sir Walter Scott, Charles Dickens, William Cowper, William Shakespeare, Robert Burns, Lord Byron, James Thomson, Samuel Rogers, and even Virgil and Aesop making guest appearances. The book covers seventeen different series of patterns by makers including Davenport, William Ridgway, John Rogers & Son, Bailey & Ball, T. & R. Boote, Goodwins & Harris, Pountney & Goldney, John Meir, John & Robert Godwin, Joseph Clementson, Dillwyn (Swansea), William Smith & Co. (Stockton) and the Brownhills Pottery Co. There are separate chapters on Shakespeare and Cowper, and a good selection of individual patterns which are not part of any series. Characters encountered include Don Quixote, Robin Hood, Robinson Crusoe, Tam O'Shanter, Paul and Virginia, Little Nell, plus, of course, the various characters found in Scott's Waverley Novels. Extending to over 200 pages and with more than 700 illustrations, it is the largest volume to date, printed as before in colour throughout.
