George Savage Glass , Octopus Books, London, 1972

Re Print.. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. D/J and Book are good, with only a little wear.This richly illustrated book by george Savage provides a comprehensive introduction to the four thousand year old tradition of glass making, from it's earliest beginnings in predynastic Egypt to the modern revivals of the art in Scandinavia and America. As readable as it is authoritative, Mr Savage's text accomplishes three aims in presenting this fascinating record of man's scientific and aesthetic inventiveness. First, it traces the history of the craft from an international perspective, covering glass making in the ancient world, the Orient, Europe, and the U.S.A. Secondly, it explains clearly the terms and techniques involved in the actual manufacture of glass. Finally, it surveys the artistic aspects of glass making, such as the complex engraving of the Romans and the elaborate decorative devices of the great Venetian glasshouses. Illustrated with 143 photographs, this book vividly demonstrates the skill and involved in the making of glass. You will receive the book seen in the image. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
