Interesting Technical Guide, 24 Oct. 2013
** Disclaimer - I received my copy of this book from the Author **
I found this book to be quite interesting, with a good mix of the history of glass in New Zealand, as well as specific details about the types of glass. This book would be a great guide for someone getting into collecting glass, as well as those who are trying to discern the provenance of pieces they already own.
The tone can be quite dry and technical, but that is, I think, more about the topic than the author.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in not just practical glassware (such as antique drinking glasses) but also those who collect pieces for their aesthetic qualities and want to know more about where their pieces have originated from.
