This book was extremely helpful...and still is...with id'ing glass. Although it doesn't have pictures of some pieces or what reproduced pieces may look like, for what I've needed it for, it has taught me so very much. I would definitely recommend this book for a starter glass collector and make sure you read what they have written, that too was completely helpful. I will more than likely be purchasing a few of these folks other glass books [i.e. candlesticks and salt & peppers]. Thanx!
