Originally published in the late 1800s, this is an extremely detailed work on collecting old English glass. Packed with over 100 illustrations and photos, this is of use to any collector.

Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
