A lavishly illustrated volume on Japanese porcelain from one of the world's finest collections.

This extraordinary collection illustrates many different aspects of the historical interaction between Japanese and European porcelain during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. It is the best cross-cultural porcelain collection in Canada and among the best of its kind in the world.
