|Jean Sutherland Melvin "American
Glass Paperweights and Their Makers"
Subtitled: "A story of glass-paperweight craftsmen of the United States, their processes, and their products"
This is the first of two editions of the only book devoted to 20th Century American Glass paperweights. No other book covers the subject as thoroughly. Most books on glass paperweights completely ignore most of the glass artists included in this book. The unique qualities of each weight maker are identified and portrayed in the photographs and descriptions. The names of the makers, and their families, and dates of production are included to aid in identification.
192 pages plus 12 full color pages featuring 112 weights
(204 pages in all). Over 100 black and white photographs and drawings.
