A fine association copy, inscribed in ink on the half title page to the potter Lucie Rie 'With my love to Lucie Christmas 1959 Bernard Leach'. Lucie Rie came from her native Vienna in 1938 to escape the dangerous political situation there, and set to work in a a small studio in London. She briefly fell under the influence of Leach, but was never sympathetic to his earthier style or his interest in Eastern pottery. They nevertheless remained friends.
