In this book, the author traces the history of glass making from its origins in Egypt before 2000 B.C. through successive devolpments that were brought about in Syria, by the Jews in Palenstine, and in the Roman and Byzantine Empires, from the latter of which the glassmakers of Venice inherited much of their lore and skill. Inside are 12 color and 76 black and white plates. This is an indespensible book for anyone interested in Ancient Glass.
