Can another out there tell me where I can get a copy of these books? They are
currently out of print and I would like to have a copy of each. Please let me
know if you have some info on these.....Thanks

Hi Alex and others,
Just recently had great luck with Amazon.com ordering an out of print
book CERAMICS FOR THE ARTIST POTTER (the copy loaned to me was printed in
1956 which makes me think it has been out of print for a while). They
found me a copy, reasonably priced, and will have it for me within three
weeks. Try them.

Find a good used book dealer & pay them a small fee to search
for these books which they will do probably thru a computer
network fo which I think there may be more than one so it
might be worth your while to ask about this and pay more than
one dealer to look? (Got that? If they want a high fee,
ckeck w/ another dealer.) Within my experience, you will
spend more $ calling all over the country (we can all suggest
dealers incl. in England) yourself than to have a professional
dealer help you.
As for Nigel Wood, my understanding is that he has a new book
due out soon - exact subject unknown to me (ask Steve
Branfman at Potters Shop) but I THINK it may include some
of the same info from the first book and more.
Good luck. Karen Gringhuis

Can heartily recommend Advanced Book Exchange at
It has inventories from many, many rare/used book dealers. I did turn up
the G. Joseph book there (though it's in Australia, oh we_ll, ask 'em
about shipping). No luck on the others tho there are a couple of H.H.
Sanders and from the 'ceramic skillbooks' series. They have a search page
good enough to allow browsing in ceramics & pottery & glazes etc.
Anyway good luck...
