Each major development is delineated and explained within its social and artistic context, and spectacular examples from museums, salerooms, and private collections around the world are shown in brilliant color photographs. Includes bibliography, glossary, and biographies of significant figures in the history of glass production. 93/4x111/4". Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
