I am delighted with this book. Large clear artistic photographs illustrate the research. I have learned such a lot about the origins of the beach found objects in the book. To my suprise one of my prized found objects is featured - a Lea & Perrins glass bottle stopper, and I now know it dates from 1876 onwards. I shall also be looking out for some purple glass - the rarest colour of all! The text explains why it is so rare. Not a craft book, but a book of answers and interesting facts to inspire the collector.

This is Ms Lambert's previous book,previous to A passion for sea glass.It taught me how to identify sea glass and I was overwhelmed when I found my first "frozen Charlotte" and saw in this book what exactly it was.(It is a piece from a ceramic doll!)
