Glassmaking skills were spread thoughout Europe by the Romans some two thousand years ago. There was a decline in glassmaking when the Roman Empire fell, but the city of Venice had re-established itself as a major glassmaking centre as early as 450A.D. Throughout the middle ages Venetian glass led the world, but was challenged and overtaken during the 19th & 20th centuries.

Our selection of books include some recent books as well as old classics. Click on any book cover or title for more information.
