This catlogue of the Gompertz and other collections, 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.
