This popular survey of glass production from pre-Roman times to the present is most notable for its fine color illustrations, which depict museum pieces from the Corning Museum of Glass. Obviously intended for museum visitors who are nonspecialists, the text covers a lot of ground in rather brief fashion. Collectors would be better served by a survey such as Paul Vickers Gardner's Glass , a volume from the Smithsonian Illustrated Library of Antiques (1979) that deals with the same topic in more detail. Library collections serving researchers will need histories that are more extensive than this one. Recommended only for nonspecialized collections.
