I hadn't realised that the book was out of print and in demand (I see on Amazon that used copies are available from £70).

My advice to anyone who is tempted is to save your money - it is more likely to convince you to buy something that is worthless than to help you find a bargain piece of studio pottery. If you really want to know who made your unknown pot you have a much better chance of finding the correct answer on this site.

on ebay at the moment in case anyone is after one

It went for £80 including postage - a total waste of £80.

I imagine it will be a very good book, as most of Godden's books that I have seen have been well researched, he really knows his stuff.

I have the same book as Ed (yours will be a more compact version I guess Dan), it does take some looking through, but it's quite well laid out.
