Product description

Mother Town by Dr. Fred Hughes

Burslem is universally known as the Mother Town of the Potteries - geographically in Stoke on Trent. The book tells the collective story of its illustrious company of famous potters - Josiah Wedgwood (who was born here) William Adams, Samuel Alcock, The Wood family, William Davenport through to the great Victorian potters, Burgess and Leigh, James Macintyre and Henry Doulton; on to William Moorcroft, James Sadler, Wilkinsons' and Midwinters; and to the post WWI artists, Susie Cooper, Clarice Cliff and Charlotte Rhead. Mixed in with this potent pot of art, craft and colour are the stories of the ordinary workers and their fight for survival in an impoverished town which grew from a Domesday reference into a frontiers town of the Industrial Revlolution to become a Lilliputian Genoa.

Good condition. Some wear on the bottom edge of the book. Small blemish on the spine.
