Published in 2001 in France by Louis Faton, this comprehensive book presents the Gillet Collection, exhibited at the Museum of Decorative Arts of Lyon and is written in French. Large size 12'x 9 1/2", with 342 pages, it contains 400 color illustrations, featuring 204 separate color images of pieces of majolica. Three experts in the field of Italian Majolica (also referred to as tin glaze ware), have contributed their knowledge, with a lengthy and scholarly bibliography included, and they include Carola Fiocco, Gabriella Gherardi, and Liliane Sfier-Fakhri. The collection includes majolica from all regions of Italy, from the earliest centers of pottery manufacturing. The photos are of the highest quality, with much detail and descriptions of each item. It is used, but is like new condition, with dust jacket (a few lines or spots lightly impressed into the surface, but no tears, rubs, or stains), with light orange colored cloth binding and dark blue letters. The interior is perfect, no stains, crimped corners, or marks. For the collector or dealer of early tin glazed and majolica wares, this volume is not just essential, but a treasure to enjoy.
