Audience: General/trade.13477 13477--Like most all of the books by Ruth Webb-Lee or books about Cup Plates in general, this book can be difficult to locate. It's long out of print (My copy is from 1948. ) It is however "The Bible of Cup Plates" for anyone active in this fairly obscure hobby. I've been a serious collector of cup plates and other pieces of early Boston & Sandwich pressed glass for about 25 years. Don't worry. I'm not going to tell you the convoluted story of how it all happened. This book is amazing and is filled with scholarly information and research as well as B&W photos of every known cup plate pattern and variant manufactured by the company. They (Lee & Rose) also assign catalog numbers to the plates and arrange them into groups which greatly eases the task of identification, etc. The catalog numbers were long ago adopted as the collecting norm. The pages are on glossy paper and the bindings are heavy duty and seem to last forever. They remind me of "library edition" books which are all around better constructed. I've never seen one with a dust jacket but then again, my copy is a "user" copy and not purchased as a collectible. So, if you are a cup plate collector this is not only THE book...it's the ONLY (reader review)
