SCRIPTURAL SUBJECTS.
LTHOUGH NOT properly coming with-
in the scope of this work, it has been
deemed advisable to insert here as full
t list as possible of printed Biblical de-
signs produced by the Staffordshire pot-
ters, for the reason that many Ameri-
can collectors have recently turned
their attention to them. While they
were not intended for any particular
section, large numbers of them  have
found their way to this country, and it
is only a question of time when they
I          \will find a place in the majority of public and
private collections. Even now there are those
who have commenced the systematic collection of this inter-
esting and attractive class of ceramic prints.
It is evident that the old English potters published a great
variety of these designs, but as they are generally regarded
by their owners with greater veneration, and held more tena-
ciously, than pieces which are characterized by decorations
of a more secular nature, we can only expect to present here
an enumeration of such as have incidentally come to light
during our search for "American views." The list may be en-
larged as our knowledge increases.
