In 1768 a Mr. Cookworthy had obtained a monopoly of the china clay of Cornwall.
In 1774 Cookworthy transferred his patent to Mr. Champion of Bristol, who soon after
applied to Parliament for its extension for a further period of 14 years, when the
original term should have expired. This application was vigorously opposed by the
potters, especially, by Wedgwood. The arguments, advanced by the two opposing

sides, are set forth in this pamphlet. 4314 and Bentley. A Catalogue of Cameos, Intaglios, Medals, Busts, etc., made by WEDGWOOD and BENTLEY. Fourth Edition. Svo., half

Moreover, in Great Britain, as on the Continent, it was a rare circumstance to find a specimen with any more definite locality assigned to it than · Egypt,''Nubia,' or the Sudan.'

“In forming the Collection which was to serve as the basis of this volume, an endeavour was made to obtain as many specimens as possible from a diversity of accurately ascertained and registered localities, distributed over as wide an area as possible.
