    The author – a former seafarer, along with his wife – has put enormous effort into collecting china used aboard British merchant ships and taking high-quality photographs for publication. This volume looks mainly at coastal vessels, with some foreign deep-sea ships included too. The china is the star here in terms of the images, and there is also a good five-page introduction to this material. The rest of the text in the book is about the vessels and (often obscure) companies that owned them, with plenty of interesting titbits. 48 different companies are covered in detail, with plenty of others getting a mention – meaning that those readers who are more interested in maritime history than pottery will still find something to catch their eye.
