Plenty of books on Depression-era glassware are on the market so it's refreshing to view a different focus in Mauzy's Rare, Unusual and Unique Depression Glass, a book directed to avid collectors who have come across rare pieces needing identification. Also exceptional are good-sized color photos displaying the pieces, along with notes on makers and history. There are no valuation notes here, but the survey of over 200 noteworthy pieces of vintage glassware - many thought to be the only one in existence - makes for an outstanding specialty item.
What a Great Book!! My Complaint? It's way too short!!! I can't believe there isn't more that couldn't have been found to put inside!!! Come on!! I was all set to sit down and enjoy a great read and 10 minutes later I had read the entire book. What a let down! I have two pieces I'm sure could be put in the book! Next edition, give me a call. I think this book should have been a paperback edition and maybe even an addendum on the back of one of their Depression Glass books. I love the Mauzy's books and own all of their books. I have pre-ordered their newest one, but this was a big disappointment. Perhaps, they could have a contest for their readers to submit pieces to go in the book, then they would have a serious book. But, at basically 87 pages this book was not really worth the money, "in my book".
I Would like to see Jim and Barbara produce more of these wonderful books. As collectors we love to check the guides. This book has beautiful pictures of rare pieces that we may never see or own, it's wonderful to see them in pictures. This book is highly recommended!
This book is easy to use with great photos and explanations. Use it all the time.
Great book and great service
