Journal of Glass Studies, Vol. 47
In this volume, Robert and Deborah Truitt offer a historical survey of the Harrach Glass Works, the second-oldest continuously operated Bohemian glassworks, which is celebrating its 300th anniversary in 2012. And Dedo von Kerssenbrock-Krosigk examines the Cadmiologia of the Prussian mining director Johann Gottlob Lehmann (1719-1767), which features the most detailed available account of a preindustrial wood-fueled glass furnace. Finally, Lawrence Jessen and Arlene Palmer describe another remarkable document: a portfolio titled "Manufacture of Window Glass," written by Jacob Cist (1782-1825), a founding partner of the first glassworks in Washington, D.C. In addition, important recent acquisitions, with photos included, are listed.
