Goddio, F., Pierson, S., Crick, M: SUNKEN TREASURE. Fifteenth Century Chinese Ceramics from the Lena Cargo. London, 2000. 227 pp. 94 colour plates. 30x24 cm. Cloth, slipcase.
Catalogue of an exhibition at the Percival David Foundation that features over 80 blue and white porcelains and celadons recovered from a Chinese junk that sank off the coast of the Philippines. This cargo is unusual in that the material has not been sold and disbursed, like other shipwreck finds, and the ceramics have not been restored so their context of discovery has been retained. Examples of imperial ceramics from the David Foundation are included for comparative purposes.
