Includes index.
Includes (page 17) Nash's sketches of Kimmeridge "coal money," the waste product of ancient pottery lathes. Nash writes: "These groups are impressive as forms opposed to their surroundings, both by virtue of their actual composition of lines and masses and planes, directions and volume; and in the irrational sense, their suggestion of a super-reality. They are dramatic, also, however, as symbols of their antiquity, as hallowed remnants of an almost unknown civilization." Nash painted the same subject in his Mineral objects (oil on canvas, 1935), which is now in the collections of the Yale Center for British Art (Department of Paintings and Sculpture, B1998.21.1, link provided herewith).
