About this title


The most comprehensive reference ever published. 2,000 illustrations. A must for collectors! 2 vols., slipcased.

From Library Journal:

Enormous as this work is, these two volumes constitute only a partial inventory of one of the finest glass collections in the world, that of the Toledo Museum of Art. They do represent the first comprehensive catalog of any major collection of American glass. Starting with 18th-century glassware and continuing in chronological order, numerous illustrations and brief texts cover more than 1400 pieces. Wilson (New England Glass and Glassmaking, 1972) gives dates, dimensions, color, type of glass, condition, provenance, and exhibition history, as well as information on method of construction and manufacturer. A former curator at Old Sturbridge Village and the Corning Museum of Glass, Wilson has done exhaustive research on glass history. He includes, for example, information on forgeries and reproductions, maps showing important glassmaking centers in the United States, an alphabetical list of U.S. glass manufacturers and their years of operation, and an excellent glossary. The only topic not covered is window glass, and Wilson does not give information on prices and limits marks to those of the Libbey glass company. Despite these minor drawbacks, this book would be an invaluable addition to all specialized decorative arts collections.?Margarete Gross, Chicago P.L.
