Jayne Miller's Collector's Guides are relatively inexpensive and generally accurate, so are a good starting point.   Ivo Haanstra's Glass fact file az (yes, our Ivo) is indispensable and inexpensive.    Other than these I suggest you spend some time at Broadfield House Glass Museum, where you can browse around most of what books and journals are in print.

If you want to buy anything pricey, borrow it from your library first and cuddle it for a couple of weeks.   It might cost you a pound or two for interlibrary loan, but that's better than spending considerably more and regretting it afterwards.    Always remember to check any expensive book for missing pages and plates before you leave the library for example there is one copy of Ysart Glass in BL's interlibrary loan stock that has pages missing.

It may well be that with this recession, libraries are now not so keen to spend money on specialist books - unless of course they already have copies.              Knowing your interest in trinket sets Jayne, you're very welcome to borrow my Bagley book and CD - and you can even cuddle it for a couple of weeks - send me an email if you are interested and I'll pop them in the post to you.         I really don't use the Bagley data that frequently. :)
Don't know where you are in the U.K., but as well as Bernard's mention of Broadfield House  -  the V. & A. in London have a wonderful gallery (most of which I always want to take home with me).     There are also the fairs/exhibitions at Birmingham and Cambridge (both twice each year) - which are marvellous places for being able to get very close to all sorts of glass.              The Miller's guides are good for a general approach to a wide variety of glass, but perhaps spead themselves too thin at times  -  good value for money though.        Currently, there's quite a selection on Abe Books for under 10 - 12 :)

That is exceedingly kind of you Paul, yes I would like to take you up on the offer and will send you an email. 

I'm in Surrey so Cambridge Birmingham and London are all pretty easy to access for me. I am certainly thinking of perhaps attending a glass fair some time in the future, and it's useful to know the V&A has lots of glass, my museum trips tend to always lead me the National Gallery which I love, but I will add that one to my to do list! Many thanks for the tips.  :)
