Sandwich Glass – The History of the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company, by Ruth Webb Lee, 1947, Fifth Edition. Published by the author, Northborough, Massachusetts. 589 pages. Hardcover
From the summary – "In Sandwich Glass, the demand for an authoritative history of the most famous of our early glasshouses is at last fully met. By an amazing bit of luck, all of the ledgers containing the minutes of all the meetings of the company, beginning with the Act of Incorporation and ending with the closing days, fell into the hands of the author. Drawing upon these valuable historical documents, the writer tells the story of the founding and growth of the Boston & Sandwich Company, describes in detail the amazing variety of its products, settles many questions that for years have puzzled collectors and student of the most beautiful and artistic glassware ever produced in America."
