9. "Japanese and Oriental Ceramics" (1971) by Hazel H. Gorham
This little book is a bit different than some I have read. This book dabbles in the different styles of pottery as well as some of the meanings of the various common designs painted on the pieces. Ms. Gorham throws in some interesting history and famous marks. This a great addition to my library.
15. "A Dictionary of Japanese Artists" by Laurence P. Roberts (1980)
This is a great reference book for the most famous potters and other artists, with some general information on each. Most of the people covered are from the 17th century through the early to mid 20th century.
70. "The Story of Imari" by Goro Shimura (2008) 200 pages. This is the "Go To" bible on Old Imari in English. This book is an essential for any serious researcher or collector of Old Imari.
