A History of English Glassmaking AD 43-1800 by Hugh Willmott
The first comprehensive discussion and survey on the subject for nearly two decades, - this book examines the nature and development of the glass industry in England, from its earliest origins with the arrival of the Roman Army until the beginning of the nineteenth century, when new processes of mass production were developed.
The evolution of the industry is followed through time, and its changing nature due to technological innovations considered. Historical, archaeological and pictorial evidence is drawn together for the first time, along with results of new research and findings from a number of key sites, making valuable information accessible to both the academic and amateur enthusiast.
