This new book is a valuable aid when used in conjunction with eight important books which picture F. Carder's Steuben glass. The tabulated format is easy to use. The line drawings of shapes in Paul Gardner's classic book The Glass of Frederick Carder (reprinted by Schiffer Publishing), auction records of the last seven years, and references to photographs in the eight books cited are cross-referenced for easy access. In addition, 40 new color photographs of Carder Steuben glass, which have not been shown in other publications, are included here. Finally, the respected authorities on this finest of American manufactured glass speak in unison to today's researchers. Curators, historians, glass dealers, scholars, and collectors alike owe a round of applause to Marshall Ketchum for this precise and important reference work; this book will make their jobs much easier.
