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.
