by Evangeline Bergstrom
Subtitled: Their Art, Construction, and Distinguishing Features
This first edition is the original 1940 private printing. It has a rich red binding with gold gilt edging.
One of the earliest books on the subject of paperweights. Evangeline Bergstrom was an early collector whose collection formed the basis for the world's only museum devoted solely to paperweights, the Bergstrom-Mahler Museum in Neenah, Wisconsin. It has been suggested that this book did more than any other to popularize paperweight collecting.
