For your pleasure, I offer this soft cover book this is most beneficial to all oil lamp collectors who are interested in Victorian Student Lamps.
This is the second of two new unused old stock of the now out of print and only book ever written for this type of oil lamps. It still has the original shrink wrap protective wrapping. I used the pictures from my own personal copy to illustrate some of the interior pages shown in the pictures.
The book is titled: "Student Lamps of the Victorian Era" by Richard C. Miller and John F. Solverson. It consists of 178 pages and measures 11 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches. There are full sized single and double student lamps shown and also some pages of miniature student lamps. There are also some patent drawings and indexes that refer to the manufacturers . In addition to the lamps themselves, there are wonderful pictures of various types of student lamp shades and chimneys that could be used. Many are art glass. As many of these lamps were originally sold with no shades or chimneys, the buyer could choose how ornate or plain they wished to trim out their lamps. The illustrations are in full color. This book is the greatest reference book for this type of lamp ever written. It will be shipped so it will not bend in transit. Check my shop for other items of interest and send an email if you have any questions.
