What are some excelent/good books that I can purchase, to help ID glass. I have a couple books ANCHOR HOCKING'S FIRE KING & MORE by Cathy & Gene Florence (Nice Book). ELEGANT GLASSWARE OF THE DEPRESSION ERA by Cathy & Gene Florence, also a nice book. I know there are many great ID books out there. What do you all recomend? and where can I find them.
Thank You

RE: ID Books

Start out at the library.....and when you find something you think is a good reference, go from there...
It rather depends on what type of glass you like...I am partial to EAPG and some of the early blown my recommendation there would be different than stuff on newer collectable glass or the utilitarian stuff like fireking and the old pyrex stuff.
