A Manual of Egyptian Pottery, Volume 2
This is the second volume in a four-book set covering all Egyptian pottery, ranging from the earliest (Fayum A) ceramics to modern pottery made in Egypt today, organized by historical periods. The manuals are quick identification guides as well as starting points for more extensive research. For each period, ceramic types are illustrated with a line drawing, accompanied by a description that includes information on the pot's material, manufacturing techniques, surface treatment, and shape. Colour plates of representative ceramic types are included to give the clearest sense of the colour, composition and surface treatment. All four volumes provide an extensive list of suggested readings as well as a bibliography for each period. Introductory chapters in each book discuss the basics of pottery manufacture and analysis. The first comprehensive guide to Egyptian pottery, this set will prove valuable to students as well as experienced field archaeologists. The volumes come in paperback and spiral bound versions. The spiral bound manuals, with hard laminated covers and tabs, are designed especially for the field and lab. This second edition includes a new expanded introduction.
