Dutch Glass Bottles of the 17th and 18th century: A Collector s Guide is a handsome, 66 page publication dealing with the little known evolution of the Dutch wine bottle. This publication will aid collectors, archeologist and historians on how to distinguish and differentiate the Dutch bottle and its form from the well documented English examples. It opens up a new chapter for the bottle collector and the historian. This book has been praised by the editor of Antiques Magazine and the former Director of Archeology in Colonial Williamsburg, Ivor Noel Hume. It is being distributed by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.; by antique stores in Amsterdam; by Colonial Williamsburg and Deerfield Village in Massachusetts. This publication is a first time ever that a scholarly review has been made using still life, archeological excavation, and cultural history to document the evolution of Dutch containers of the 17th and 18th century.

This publication on Dutch Glass Bottles certainly takes the mystery out of how to distinguish Dutch Glass bottles from English bottles which have always confused collectors over the last 25 years. An excellent publication and one that I recommend to others. --Tom Hybet
This book on Dutch Bottles relies far more on archeological remains and fine arts than any publication on bottles I have seen before. It is unique in focusing a light upon the Dutch Glass industry of the 17th and 18th centuries in a way that highlights bottle collecting and combines it with social history and fine arts. A unique publication --Joseph Singleton
