Simeon Shaw wrote and had published a historical book in 1829. It is quite a feet that he could get a book published. I have been reading the book, "History of the Staffordshire Potteries." It is very comprehensive, not as just a history of pottery in Staffordshire but of many pottery techniques in general. The book is now available on the internet, and worthy of a review so as to understand the man. Simeon Aykroyd Shaw is my great-great grandfather. My grandmother is Melissa Shaw Wardle.
