Kenyon, G.H.
The Glass Industry of the Weald.

Leicester University Press: 1967.

The first comprehensive account of glassmaking in the forested Weald District of Sussex and Surrey. The focus is on the Medieval period, and into the 16th century, at which point the switch from wood to coal as fuel for the furnaces abruptly doomed the Weald glass industry.

Hardcover. 7.5"x10", 231 pages, 22 b/w plates and numerous text illustrations, dj. From the Augustus Kelley purchase of the remainder of the stock and marked with their "reprint" sticker, but this is, in fact, the original printing.
