Here is the most famous paperweight collection in the world and it is the magnificent collection of t Evangeline Bergstrom. This priceless collection is on permanent display at the John Nelson Bergstrom Art Center and Museum in Neenah, Wisconsin. Though these paperweights are viewed annually by thousands of visitors, and many have been described and pictured in various magazine articles and in the book Mrs. Bergstrom herself wrote nearly thirty years ago (1939). Never before has the entire collection been pictured in full color in a single book as well as some one hundred additional items that have been added to the collection by generous benefactors. The foreword describes the records Mrs. Bergstrom left, gives biographical information about her, and explains her philosophy of collecting and of the esteem in which her activities were held. The book is divided into four pictorial sections, French, British, European, and American. Each section is introduced by an informative preface and every color plate has a facing caption page on which each item shown in the plate is fully described and its origin traced. In all, approximately 700 paperweights and related objects, vases, doorknobs, and so on, among the finest of their kind in the world, are reproduced. The glossary will be extremely valuable to beginning collectors, and the concise index helps the reader locate any specific weight quickly and simply by category or origin. The carefully organized bibliography is another particularly valuable feature for the serious collector. The book's author is assistant director of the Bergstrom Art Center and curator of its paperweights, was uniquely qualified for the task of assembling this book. Her position at the museum has given her the greatest familiarity with the collection itself, and also a devotion to Mrs. Bergstrom's own hopes and ideals in preserving the collection for posterity.
