Overview

One of our best-selling books ever, A Field Guide to Carnival Glass by David Doty just got even better. New black and white photographs in Vase and Contemporary sections, amendments to the text and 2000 values keep this book anchored in its place as the definitive reference for Carnival collectors.

Originally published in 1998, the magnitude of the "field guide" is phenomenal. So much is packed into its 374 pages: hundreds of photos (both color and black and white), a database of actual sale prices for 37,000 items, descriptions and complete information on all the classic patterns, and a 32-page color section showing all Carnival colors, even the rare finds. Doty ensures that any reader finishes the book an expert with his specialized chapters on such topics as: How Carnival Glass Was Made, Sorting Out Peacock and Urn Patterns, Lettered Pieces, Vases, Novelties & Minatures, Decorated Carnival, Lamps & Shades, Hatpins, and Contemporary Carnival.

Sound like a hard-to-read textbook? It's not. Billed by collectors as a "gold mine of a book," its user-friendly format impresses all readers. Patterns are conveniently listed from A-Z, and the book contains an index to color section as well as a "pattern by shape" index for easy reference.
