Time Capsule of Bottles

by UncleRon on Dec 20, 2011

This book was written to classify and document mid-nineteenth century glass and ceramic containers and their makers. The 7,000 bottles recovered from the Steamboat Bertrand essentially represent a 1865 time capsule of Americana. The careful research and analysis provided will stand the test of time as a research tool for historians, historic archeologists, and bottle collectors. This is a must volume for a historian's material culture library. This book is in the process of being expanded in another volume dealing with the passengers, officers, crew and consignees on the steamboat Bertrand. In addition, the new volume will add new information on cargo artifacts that was not available when the first book was printed in early 1970s..
