I am new to collecting Depression glass, as I inherited several mixed pieces from relatives. I found the book very helpful in identifying patterns, but would have liked a little more in depth on the history of the patterns, perhaps because I am new to the field. The pictures are great! Overall, I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in Depression glass.
