Also featured are Butler Brothers catalogs and Jefferson's Canadian Glass Factory catalogs from Ontario.
This book is author Bill Edwards' continuation of the Millersburg "story," from his two other books, both written in the 80s, that he feels he never truly finished. His love for Millersburg was rekindled through his recent collecting and resurgence of the glass's popularity, and he published one of the most in-depth histories of the Millersburg company. The book features that history as well as hundreds of beautiful pieces of glass.
