Batch book.
According to Douglas V. Johnson, grandson of Thomas Johnson, this batch book belonged to Thomas Johnson, who experimented with making his own glass. A stenographer transcribed his notes into this book.
Thomas Johnson was born in 1866 in Dudley, England and emigrated to the US in 1879. Johnson worked as a gaffer at Tiffany around the turn of the century. After leaving that company, he joined Martin Bach in 1902 at the Quezal Art Glass and Decorating Company. Johnson was working under William S. Blake at the Union Glass Company in 1905, making Kew Blas art glass. Later, he worked for several years for a glass firm in central Ohio.
