Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Old English Glasses: An Account of Glass Drinking Vessels in England, From Early Times to the End of the Eighteenth Century; With Introductory Notices, Original Documents, Etc

Up to the end of the seventeenth century the main history has been drawn from documents, with illustrative glass vessels few and far between. The turning point is now reached, and the sources of information are reversed: the glasses increase, and the documents diminish both in number and consequence, so that long before the middle of the eighteenth century the story is disentangled by the evidence of the glasses alone.

Having finally come into the open, the task is undertaken of organising an exceeding great army of items, long since disbanded and dispersed. By striking them into sixteen groups, their relative places in the social history of the eighteenth century have now been recovered, and it is believed that by the aid of the terminology so formulated any eighteenth-century glass may readily have its position assigned to it by the collector. Accuracy of classification has been assured as to some groups by the accident of dated examples, while the association of items in others with political movements, temporary public feeling, or special social habits, has suffered their dates to be also ascertained, usually with tolerable exactness, often with certainty. Thus the varieties of the baluster-stemmed, the air-twisted, the opaque-twisted, and the cut-stemmed glasses are respectively restored to their positions in the 'long history.

A chapter is devoted to Jacobite Glasses whose story up to the present time has, for obvious reasons, been somewhat of a mystery, and an account is given of Irish Glasses. A final chapter deals with the Drinks, the Wine, and the Ardent and Cordial Waters, from anglo-saxon times to the end of the eighteenth century, based entirely upon documentary evidence.
