This brand new book was purchased for resale directly from the publisher for sale in our shop before it went out of print. It is a 2000 revised edition in hardcover and is absolutely new condition.
Here is a quote directly from the publisher"
"Twenty-five years after William Heacock sparked an Opalescent glass collecting trend with his book Victorian Colored Pattern Glass Book II, Opalescent Glass for A to Z and 13 years after his Book 9, Cranberry Glass, JoAnn Elmore has revised and updated these reference gems into one incredible work. Elmore edited all areas of the text and provided much new information on patterns found in the original book, as well as adding upwards of 75 more patterns.
Several discoveries from the influential but often overlooked Dugan factory will also interest collectors and historians. New black and white illustrations, catalog reprints and company advertisements proliferate. 1300 opalescent and cranberry opalescent items are pictured in beautiful color. Several special sections address topics from original manufacturer's names to a color illustration on the creation of cranberry opalescent glass. A revised thumbnail history of each opalescent manufacturer will be a useful guide for all collectors."
