The original text for this section of the Catalogue was prepared by Margaret Medley (1918-2000) when she was the second Curator of the Foundation. Her original text was for many years the standard reference on the subject of blue and white porcelain. This text was later revised in 1976, after Sir Percival's death and after some duplicate pieces were sold to help support the activities of the Foundation. Much has therefore changed in the field of Chinese ceramics and at the Foundation since the publication of the early editions of this Section and a new Introduction has been included in the Revised Edition.

All the romanization of Chinese has also been changed to the now standard pinyin system. The results of recent research and excavations have been included here, especially those from Jingdezhen, and the references to exhibitions have been brought up to date along with the Bibliography which has been expanded.
