Painted tin-glaze pottery is perhaps the most thoroughly European ware the western world has produced. And yet it was an Islamic invention. The author traces the development of the tradition from the beginning to the present day with great precision. Illustrated with 24 color plates, 189 monochrome plates, 33 figures, and 9 maps.
