pp 700 Lengthily inscribed copy of Mary Baker Eddy's works by the Christian Scientist and film star Ginger Rogers to a British potter with whom she'd been taking classes in the late 1960s. Rogers started writing on the first blank and in her enthusiasm spilled over onto the half title, beginning with a quotation from Ephesians and continuing: 'To Harry Stringer - This book - This "gift of God" plus our St James version of the Holy Bible - has been my constant source of healing and regeneration through the years, may it give you and yours, a new view of that which has always been - God - and his Omnipresent goodness. Faithfully, Ginger Rogers 1969'. An original colour photograph of Stringer and Ginger hugging in Stringer's London studio is tipped onto the inside of the front cover with Stringer's 'Library of HHS Taggs Yard' blind ownership stamp on the title page. We have recently acquired the library of Harry Horlock Stringer who was a leading British potter at the old Fulham Pottery in the 1950s where he concentrated on earthenware. Later he moved to Taggs Yard in Barnes, south-west London, where he built and ran his own school, welcoming pupils and making friends such as Ginger Rogers from across the world at a time when studio pottery was enjoying newfound popularity. Stringer experimented with his own glazes and firing techniques, and wrote a book on Raku, becoming a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association, editing the association's journal for a time and exhibiting widely as well as lecturing at home and abroad. The book is near fine, a little faded to the upper cover with a plastic wrap around. A second short signed note from Rogers to Stringer is tipped in at the end of the book.
