William Gaunt & M D E Clayton-Stamm. De Morgan Foundation, Studio Vista Publishers, London, 1971.
This book is an excellent monograph on one of the most important figures in the British Arts and Crafts movement. De Morgan was a long time friend of and collaborator with William Morris and he designed tiles, stained glass and furniture for Morris & Co. This comprehensive book includes detailed account of De Morgan's career and is profusely illustrated with examples of his work. There's an invaluable pictorial summary of De Morgan pottery marks, a full list of bibliographical references and a detailed index at the rear.
De Morgan's work is now extremely highly prized by collectors worldwide and this an essential reference for collectors, dealers and enthusiasts. Condition: The book is in very good condition.
The binding is tight and the pages are extremely bright and clean. As you can see there is some wear to the dust cover at the top, but it is otherwise very good indeed. There are many more items in my shop that don't appear in regular item searches.
