Originally published in the late 1800s, this is an extremely detailed work on collecting old English glass. Packed with over 100 illustrations and photos, this is of use to any collector. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include Introductory: Drinking Glasses in England to the End of the 17th Century Green's Glasses Fine Wine Glasses : Baluster Stems Air Twists White Twists Cut Stems Fine Glasses for Special Drinks, Including Sweemeat Glasses Plain Glasses for Tavern and Household use Cut Glass Engraved Glasses Curios Bottles, Decanters, Flasks and Jugs Opaque and Coloured Glass Frauds, Fakes and Foreigners Foreign Glass Manufacturing and Decorative Processes Prices Bibliography Glossary Index
