Old Glass and How to Collect It. By J. Sydney

Lewis. (T. Werner Laurie. 15s. net.)—This interesting book is concerned with old English and Irish table-glass, and should be useful to collectors, especially in the notes on frauds and prices. There is very little English glass of earlier date than the Restoration, when Buckingham, Dryden's " Zimri," started a glassworks at Greenwich and flint-glass was invented, while the French Huguenots in and after 1685 brought us their secrets and their skill. The illustrations are so very good that they will set some now collectors to work, for nothing is more delectable than old glass.
