American pressed glass, which was at its zenith in the 1870s, entails hundreds of patterns and dozens of shapes with elaborate geometric, animal, fruit, and floral designs. Available in crystal and sparkling colors, this collectible glassware flourished until the end of the 1920s, when a national depression started and a new glass took precedence. This all-new collector's encyclopedia features approximately 135 new patterns and photographs, bringing the total to more than 1,600 photos showcasing the exquisite patterns and beautiful colors of the quality pressed glass produced for 60 years in America. Bill Edwards and Mike Carwile are authorities on pressed, carnival, and opalescent glass, and the sales of their other three editions of Standard Encyclopedia of Pressed Glass prompted this fourth edition.

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
