As a novice in the world of paperweights, this book gave me a complete overview. It was an excellent buy.
I can not put this book down. Daily I use it to enhance my knowledge of the antique and moderm paper weight. This book will only enhance your desire to acquire the best.
Begins with a complete history of glass-making and the development of the paperweight industry to give the reader understanding and context when looking at a piece going forward. Importantly, contains color pictures of groupings of paperweights by region and maker, which makes learning to identify paperweights by the maker's style and so forth so much clearer and easier. Will never regret purchasing this book for my reference library.Also, arrived as described by seller - very pleased.
Beautiful book. My wife and I found this looking for another book on paperweights on 's website. Wonderful way to learn about paperweights if you wish to become a collector or just learn about how these pieces are constructed. Many plates, two thirds of which are in color. Well worth it for the price.
I have containers, papers, magazines, tissue, candy wrappers, etc. cataloged and stacked throughout my home and there is nothing worse than an errant breeze from an open door blowing papers around or a startled cat knocking over a stack of 20 year old newspapers. After reading the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and now 4th addition of "Paperweights of the World", I was able to locate all but three of the listed paperweights in my apartment. Now I rest easy knowing that I can carefully monitor every paperweight, every piece of paper and every object I own.
As good as I had hoped for and maybe even better. This is my style of book. Thank you again.
