Review:

George Johnson's book on Christmas ornaments adds a nice touch to any collector's bookshelf. This new volume is largely about glass ornaments and happily includes a wide range of them. Other chapters deal with Dresden ornaments, plus paper, wax, fabric, metal, and plastic decorations. Additionally there are sections on electric lighting, tree tops, and stands. Altogether there are nearly 2,000 full color photos with descriptions and values.
