Le Monarque des ombres, Javier Cercas, Actes Sud – traduit de l’espagnol par Aleksandar Grujicic et Karine Louesdon
One of the most important ceramic concerns in Staffordshire in the early nineteenth century, examined here for the first time Entirely new research which identifies a long-forgotten factory, the wares of which have been generally admired but were previously unattributed Comprehensively illustrated This is the first book to explore the work of the forgotten ceramics concern - Chetham & Woolley. The original partnership of James Chetham and Richard Woolley established a factory in Longton, Staffordshire in 1795. The partnership was responsible for developing a new ceramic body - semi-transparent stoneware, properly termed Fildspathic Stoneware. In its day the Chetham & Woolley factory occupied a very important position in the Staffordshire ceramics industry. Until recent research carried out by Colin Wyman practically all memory of Chetham & Woolley had been lost. This book re-establishes the factory's well-deserved reputation.
