Including a representative range of ceramics from the fifth to the twentieth century and items in various other materials, the collection of Korean art in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, is one of the finest outside of the Far East. Although Korea's ceramics equal China's in quality and technique, they are far less known. Compiled by Yun Yong-i and edited by Regina Krahl, this richly illustrated catalog provides detailed information on each object, as well as background studies on Korean culture and ceramic technology.

'... this work by Yun is invaluable for those who do not have the Korean language.' Apollo Magazine 'Having waited more than ten years for the publication of this book, it is good to read essays on ceramics ... that bring long-overdue information to an English-language audience.' Burlington Magazine 'It was the hope of Gompertz that such a catalogue would make people more familiar with this outstanding and far too little-known tradition of ceramic manufacture. This impressively researched catalogue of a fine collection will set the standard for many years to come.' Reference Reviews
