But the "More" in the first edition needed more research.
Reviewer: Mark J. Desmond from Connecticut, US. November 25, 1999 For the most part this book is an excellent resource for identifing Fire-King glassware and I would recommend it highly along with all of the author's other books. I own them all! As a specialist collector of the Anchor Hocking Early American Prescut pattern (10000pcs), I must say that I feel that some of the Prescut items listed are somewhat rarer than the book would suggest. There are also quite a few more items available in this particular pattern than are listed. I view the book's section on Prescut as another of this well known author's courageous attempts to chart previously uncharted waters and I'm sure that subsequent editions of this book will include course corrections.
Don't miss any books by this author!
Reviewer: A reader from Florida, USA May 9, 1999 Another winner for Gene Florence. Wouldn't be without his books. Beautiful, color pictures on nearly every page. I have read this book and all of his others over and over again. Good reference for beginning collector of Fire King
Reviewer: A reader from North Carolina February 20, 1999 This is my first purchase of reference material for my new hobby of depression-glass collecting. I found the pictures to be exellent, and the price guides informative, although a bit awkward to use at times. His comparisons of similar items are helpful, and the book is worth purchase for the pictures alone. Hope to compare it with the Kilgo book someday. Great Pictures; Information NOT well researched
Reviewer: A reader from Deep South August 4, 1998 Quality photograpy. Has the look a of a "thrown" together book.Much of the historical information is not clear or is inaccurate. Needed much better editing.Many items shown but not priced; some items not even shown or mentioned based only on the limited research of the author. Author needs to do MUCH better research if there is to be a volume 2. Buy only for the pics!!
