The original edition of this work was published in ten volumes in 1896 by Appleton and Company.
This volume contains every word and every picture of Oriental Ceramic Art, which is listed in almost every encyclopaedia and in many museum handbooks as a basic source book in its field. While its major emphasis is on the ceramics of China, it also has sections on Japan and Korea. Published in 1896 in a limited edition of 500 copies it soon disappeared from the market as most of the ten volume, 43 x 56 cm sets were given to major institutions, heads of state, and friends of W.T. Walters, who paid for its publication and whose collection illustrated it. Because of the massive margins in the original set we needed only a very slight reduction in the text page areas, with many of the colour pages emerging in their original size. S.W. Bushell was an English doctor who spent many years as physician to the British legation in Peking. He made ceramics his avocation and absorbed and translated many of the Chinese works on this and allied subjects. He wrote two handbooks for the Victoria and Albert Museum and was coauthor of the catalog of the Morgan Ceramic collection.
