This book or leaflet is just as the title states, it is a data base of Blue Mountain Pottery pieces. It is produced in table form, and lists in number order the entire works of Blue Mountain Pottery, however there are gaps as the creator did not have access to the complete company listing. There are additional phoographic sheets attached with this catalogue to help the reader or collector identify their piece. Probably hard to find on Abebooks.com, but you can try to email the author: Don M. Cross, BMPcollector (at) aol.com (Not sure if it is still working)
