Blair, Dorothy.
A History of Glass in Japan.

Kodansha International and the Corning Museum of Glass: 1973.

Japanese pottery and porcelain are both well documented with an entire library full of books, but what of Japanese glass? This is the definitive English reference to this fascinating and often-ignored subject, a wide-ranging, meticulously researched, pioneering study. The author surveys the art and craft of the Japanese glassmaker from ancient to modern times, including both material which was influenced by Western designs and pieces which are of undiddled Japanese design. Includes an extensive and exceptionally useful bibliography.

Hardcover. 9"x11.5", 479 pages, 37 color and 203 b/w illustrations.
