The Pottery Makers 1969 was the 15th book to be issued in series 606b. It was written by I & J Havenhand and, like all the books in this series, was beautifully, lovingly illustrated by John Berry. This book focuses on ‘The Potteries’ in the 1960s – the then-thriving industry centred on Stoke-on-Trent. It is one of the rare books in the series that show women at work in British industry, engaging in activities at a similar level to men.
This matt copy has, early on in its life, been covered in clear plastic to protect it. Otherwise the book in in very nice, clean condition with little wear. There’s a light school stamp on the front and back endpapers. With a tally number of 250, I believe it to be a first edition.
