"Depression Glass as defined in this book is the colored glassware made primarily during the Depression years in the colors of amber, blue, black, crystal, grren, pink, red, yellow and white. There are other colors and some glass made before, as well as after, this time, but primarily, the glass within this book was made from the 1920's through the end of the 1930's.

He has highlighted the more common patterns and makers and provided a "must have" book for anyone who buys, sells or collects!
