The collection of Korean art in the Fitzwilliam Museum is one of the finest outside the Far East, containing rich holdings of early unglazed ceramics, celadon stonewares of the Koryo dynasty, punch'ong wares and porcelains of the Choson dynasty as well as items in glass, jade, bronze, brass, lacquer and wood. This catalogue, compiled by Yun Yong-i and edited by Regina Krahl, supplies detailed information on the artefacts and posits a dating system which will be useful to students and collectors of Korean art worldwide. The introductions to each type of ware represent important contributions to the subject. Essays on Korean culture and the technology of Korean ceramics set the works of art in historical context. The finest examples of each type of ware are represented in 32 pages of colour illustrations and over 450 black and white photographs show varied views of the specimens.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... 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
