Summary The presidios, missions, and pueblos of both Spanish and Mexican California have provided a rich trove of ceramics materials; however, sparse analysis of the more remote areas of New Spain left an incomplete picture of economies. This volume rectifies this gap by examining the 18th and 19th century ceramic production in Alta California.
