Arthur Hayden, Robert Copeland Cassell, London, 1925. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine with foxing to page edges. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. An association copy signed (NOT by the author) to the title page by Robert Copeland at the Spode Works. Robert Copeland was the great-grandson of William Taylor Copeland, who took over historic Stoke firm Spode in 1833. He worked for the family business for most of his life and was also a leading light behind the creation of the Gladstone Museum and the preservation and restoration of Cheddleton Flint Mill. Robert was born at Tittensor Chase and joined W T Copeland and Sons aged 18 before heading off to serve his country during the Second World War. On his return he spent three years 'at the bench' at the Copeland factory in Church Street, at the insistence of his uncle Ronald, achieving master potter status in 1954. It was through Mr Copeland's passion for china that he met his wife Sally. Mr Copeland spotted Sally, who was working in the china department at Peter Jones, at a Goldsmiths Livery Company trade association dinner, when she upturned a side plate to look at the back stamp. The couple married in 1961 and were together until Sally's death in 1983. Robert Copeland worked as marketing director for WT Copeland from 1956 to 1966, when it was sold to U.S. firm Carborundum. The Spode name was reinstated in 1970 and although Mr Copeland lost his status as director when it merged with Royal Worcester six years later, he was appointed historical consultant. The book is illustrated throughout in black and white and with hand-tipped full colour plates. Some light shelfwear to the cloth at the outer extremites of the boards and head and heel of spine. Dustjacket has some wear and a few closed tears to the outer extremities and a small stain to the upper front panel. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Percy F. Westerman One of the scarcest Westerman titles in VG / VG-condition. 1st Edition published by Jarrold and Sons in 1914. Lacking one of the 9 plates, nibbles to some page top corners. Inscription dated Dec 1919. I don't know of any other printings other than the First Edition. A pleasing copy of this rare title and worthy of most collections.
