Buchbeschreibung London : Thames and Hudson, 1977. Buchzustand: Gut. 351 S. Umschlag leicht berieben. - The general understanding of the correct meaning and usage of terms relating to any specialized subject is the basic raison d'être of a dictionary of this type. This volume - a companion of the previously published Illustrated Dictionary of Ceramics by George Savage and Harold Newman - is intended to fill the need for a comprehensive reference work suitable for all those with an interest in glass from antiquity to the present. The aim is to provide a convenient and easily manageable combination of closely integrated text and illustrations, with extensive use of cross-references to subjects on related topics, for the collector, dealer or museum curator, as well as any amateur with a general interest in the subject. The earlier history of glass-making - an outline account of which is provided by Robert J. Charleston in his Introduction - is largely a record of the work of individual makers and decorators, and hence short biographical entries are included, as well as those on the later factory wares, be they utilitarian or ornamental. In addition, all types of techniques, tools, forms and shapes, methods of production and styles of decoration are described, and many illustrated. In the case of the major factories and centres of production, a brief history is included and where appropriate there are subsidiary entries describing particular wares known by distinctive names, thus providing an overall view of the types of product, their styles and specialities, from important Continental, British and American glassworks.

Buchbeschreibung Folio Society, London, limited facsimile edition, 2006, 2006. Limited edition of 1000 numbered copies. 2 vols, three-quarter dappled calf with hand-marbled paper boards and edges by Ann Muir, 1164 +1164 pp. A facsimile reproduction of the first edition, splendidly produced and presented in a robust buckram-bound box with scalloped edges and volume divider. From the publisher's description: "Dr Johnson’s Dictionary has become part of the lexicon of Western culture.Johnson’s definitions are sometimes personal, revealing his prejudices and enthusiasms. His conservative politics and sincere High Church religious affiliation alongside his half-teasing, half-sincere strictures on Scotland form the basis for the famous definitions for oats, Tory and Whig." On the production of the facsimile: "Ann Muir, who runs a hand-marbling workshop, has created the marbling for the edges and the front and back boards. No mistakes can be made when marbling page edges, since any slip ruins the entire book block. After each edge or sheet of paper has been rolled, the tray must be cleared and new paints floated. The calf leather used for the binding is treated with a process which was customary in Dr Johnson’s time. The mottled finish involves hand-washing the skins repeatedly in paste, salts of tartar, glare and copperas. The skins are sourced from Graham Wright Leather, a family-run business since 1929 in Northampton - the centre of the leather trade in Johnson’s time. The books are bound at the small craft bindery of Smith Settle, where Ken Smith and his team of craftsmen sew the sheets and make the cases, including creating the raised leather bands and hand-blocking the spine, cover and separate leather labels in gold." Out of Print. Copy No. 169. As new in publisher's box, the printed label of which is slightly marked. Artikel-Nr. ABE-33918
