Details

An admirer of John Ruskin and a founder of Brighton Museum, Henry Willett was an enthusiastic collector, especially of 16th?19th century British ceramics. His collection is remarkable for being rooted in 'popular British history', with a varied subject matter depicting bull baiting, pugilism, poetry, animal husbandry and teetotalism. The book reproduces 700 of the nearly 2,000 items he owned and replicates his idiosyncratic cataloguing system, with sections including ‘Royalty and Loyalty’, ‘Naval Heroes’ and ‘Domestic Incidents’.
