Review of Bagley Glass - Bowey, Parsons (3rd Edition)
« on: July 15, 2011, 01:09:05 AM »
Well, kudos to Angela for this marvelous book! :hiclp:

It's extremely well-organised, clear and easy to read. Since I'm a historian, I appreciate the opening chapter with a history of the factory and the founders.  Of even greater value to the collector, of course, are the sections on identifying Bagley glass, organised by type in the most helpful manner.

Another concept I find very useful is the comparison of similar products from other companies, i.e. items that look like Bagley pieces but which were not produced by Bagley.

Further, it's absolutely packed with illustrations; these alone are worth the purchase.

The book closes with a comprehensive cross-reference index.

What can I say?  Buy it, buy it!  :rah:
