Editorial Reviews

Review

After nineteen editions, almost 40 years, and over 4,000 pages, goodbye is very difficult to say. So instead Collector Books would like you to join us in celebrating the retirement of Cathy and Gene Florence. For the nineteenth, and last time, we present Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression Glass by America's leading glassware authorities. Every edition has included new information and up to date prices.

About the Author

A collector since childhood, Gene Florence's hobby of buying and selling glassware turned into a full-time career. First writing a book on Depression Glass, Florence has gone on to author many popular glassware titles including books on Depression Glass; Occupied Japan Collectibles; Kitchen Glassware; Very Rare Glassware; 40s, 50s, & 60s Glassware;Elegant Glassware; Stemware; Glassware Pattern Identification; Anchor Hocking's Fire-King; Glass Candlesticks; and Salt & Pepper Shakers.

Cathy Florence, graduated with honors and a coveted voice award from high school, attended Georgetown College where she obtained a French major and an English minor, then married her middle-school sweetheart Gene Florence. In the mid-80s she authored a book on collecting quilts, harking back to skills taught her by her grandmothers; and she has since co-authored many books on glass with husband Gene.

As always, Florence has good information on collectible glass. New to this book are pictures with numbers so we can tell which piece is which, a very helpful addition. The pictures are very good with attention to detail on the patterns. His section on reproductions is also a very helpful portion, as there are many people out there who don't know how often this glass has been reproduced. I am sad that it's his last book, as I've had several of his editions on glassware.

I am a collector/dealer that loves Depression Glass but am far from an expert. This book gave me information on some other patterns that were not in some of my other references. I have already used it some and will keep it as a great source of information in the future.

Don't know how many past issues of Gene Florence's depression glass books I've got, but they are invaluable for the collector. I used to get the new edition every year, but now I just get one every 2 or 3 years. Depends on how far into your collections you are, or if you are selling. I've read books by other authors, but in my opinion, the Florence books are the most accurate and have the best photography.

I read this cover to cover. The pricing information and items available in each pattern are invaluable information for collectors. I was disappointed that the patterns were not photographed well enough to distinguish one pattern from another if they were similar. For those who are just starting to collect or are trying to identify a particular pattern this would not be particularly helpful.

This book is an excellent reference for depression glass, as it is the 19th edition over the past 40 years and is constantly updated. I have been using this reference for over twenty years.
