Splendid - well-illustrated and authoritative - catalogue of an exhibition which examines the history of porcelain from its beginnings in China, but particularly concentrating on the export porcelain which had a world-wide impact through trade, while, in the West, it spurred an enthusiasm for collecting which continues to the present day.
