In this volume, Peter Francis examines George Minty's memoirs of being a glassmaker in 18th century Ireland, and An Jiayao takes a look at the 1994 excavation in China of 150,000 glass beads from the sixth century. Additional articles discuss ancient glass found in Egypt, Italy, and Lebanon. In addition, important recent acquisitions, with pictures, are listed.
Published since 1959, the generously illustrated Journal of Glass Studies is the only academic publication devoted entirely to the scholarship of the art, history, and early technology of glass.
