The state of the dustwrapper would suggest that this might have been an antique dealer’s reference copy, but there are no marks or annotations in the book itself.
See the description below from the dustwrapper flap.
Despite the book being the definitive work on Lambeth ware, Hutchinson allowed the book to go out of print. The rights to the book later passed to Richard Dennis Publications, who issued a revised edition in 2002. This remains in print and is available from the publisher for £38.50 post paid.
As the book was intended as a work of reference, the publisher used heavyweight paper to better reproduce the many photographs, so it would cost a good deal to send the book abroad.
