Format: Hardcover
The publication of Willy's book marks a major milestone in the field of black-glass collecting. It is the first real effort at a comprehensive and authoritative guide on European bottles aimed at a broad English-reading audience worldwide. For years, collectors and others have waited for just such a book to appear. The numerous colour photos are outstanding. The text is clear, to the point, and easy to read. Any collector, no matter where he lives or what he collects, will, after reading the book, be able to pursue his passion in a much more informed way. I highly recommend the book, which should be on the book shelf of every serious bottle collector and student of historical glass containers.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By R. Orlowski on March 4, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of the most comprehensive books on the early development of the bottle; particularly those from England and the Low Countries. Absolutely beautiful photographs on nearly every page, complete bibliography for further reference. This book is in the same class as the revered McKearin volumes, and every serious collector of 17th, 18th, and early 19th century bottles should have a copy in their library.
