I already had "Miller's Collecting Glass" and "Starting to Collect Antique Glass". I took advantage of a less than $2 ex-library book offer. All 3 books cover the history, manufacture, and styles of glass through the years. Each features different color photos and selects more objects to display from different regions and eras than the others. This book originally cost $60 and has more text. But the photos really added to what I already have. I had wondered if I would be getting a sales brochure from this auction house but it is an encyclopedia. Prices are not listed (they are outdated anyway) like they are in the other books. If you are new to glass this is an excellent book to refine your interests and then you can look for specialty books. I took a chance on buying this book sight-unseen and I'm glad I did.
