|* The Portfolio was a monthly periodical art journal established in 1870, edited and with many monographs written by the English artist and author Philip Gilbert Hamerton (1834-1894). The monographs were accompanied by the original prints taken from the plates, prepared by eminent artists of the day for the pupose of being published in The Portfolio. For lovers and collectors of porcelain, the monograph on Josiah Wedgewood is by the famed Wedgewood dealer Frederich Rathbone called "... the best Wedgewood article or monograph ever written".|
