About the Author:

Bill Edwards is a noted expert on pressed, carnival, and opalescent glass, and has been authoring books since 1975. He now co-authors books with expert Mike Carwile. His knowledge is unsurpassed in the glass world. He has written books on Carnival Glass, Northwood Carnival Glass, Millersburg Glass, Opalescent glass, Rarities of Carnival Glass, and Pressed Glass.

Review:

There is good general information on glass terminology and on some of the important glass makers of the era. Examples are of many different pieces and there is a very informative paragraph on each piece. Most of the photos are clear. However, my one complaint is that some of the photos, in particular of the clear glass, are not clear enough to show the details of the patterns. This makes identification nearly impossible in these cases. I still find this a helpful reference...-Nancy Clark
