"Bassett's comprehensive presentation of Roseville pottery is exemplary. If you are a novice collector of Roseville, this is a wonderful place to start your research and indulge your enthusiasm... Presented beautifully... Written assuredly and with a teacher's touch... Highly recommended."

--Maine Antique Digest, February 2000
 

"Each pottery line is included in this scholarly look at the long-lived company... With additional text devoted to pottery collectors' etiquette and ethics, condition, experimental and trial glazes, tips for identifying Roseville, a timeline of Roseville products, factory marks and artist signatures, as well as reproductions, fakes and fantasy pieces, this book appears to have it all."
