Mauzy's Depression Glass
Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.
This photographic reference and price guide is a revised and expanded sixth edition of the Mauzy's much-lauded guide to Depres-sion glass. Known for their user-friendly reference works, the Mauzy's new edition of their authoritative book is an amazing compen-dium that includes 140 additional pieces, four more patterns, and 250 new photographs. Accurate measurements, current values, and important information on reproductions are also included in this updated release.
Covering American and Canadian Depression glass, Fire-King, and fifties glassware, patterns are listed alphabetically by name following introductory sections on Depression glasswares and values. Each pattern section begins with a summary of the pattern's history and other information. The photographs are of a high standard and include captions. Values appear in sidebar format for each pattern. A bibliography and an index are included at the end of the book, along with related Web sites.
Impressive in scope and design, this inclusive volume is a lot of book (272 pages with full-color illustrations) for a very affordable price - no glassware collector or dealer's library should be without this book.
