David Whitehouse curated the Corning Museum of Glass's 2004 special exhibition, "Beyond Venice", and begins his lecture with a review of some of the glass in the exhibition and writings about glass technology prior to the early 17th century by Antonio Neri. Neri was an alchemist and a priest who was part of a Florentine workshop owned by the Medicis. He also lived in Antwerp for about 7 years where he made glass at the workshop of Ghiridolfi. Neri's book is a batch book for glass-not the first, but the first to be printed. Whitehouse's conclusion is a brief summary of the dissemination and translation of Neri's book.
