The website of the New York Public Library has provided this digitised version of `Spode and his successors: a history of the pottery: Stoke-on-Trent 1765-1865' a book written by Arthur Hayden, which was originally published in 1925. The forty-six images, many in colour, illustrate the various objects produced by the Staffordshire potteries of Spode and W. T. Copeland. Objects illustrated include vases, plates and dishes, as well as figures, including an earthenware bust of Josiah Spode the second. Pages from old pattern books are also included in this volume.
