The 14th edition has a new color column system that makes the price guide
even easier to read. Whether you're a serious investor or have a casual interest
in the beautiful depression era glassware, this is the book you will turn to first,
and probably most often. Many patterns, nice descriptions, accurate market
values, Mr Florence is considered THE EXPERT among the depression glass
community in my area. A fine reference which is a visual pleasure. If you are
considering investing in depression glass, invest in this book first. You will make
the purchase price back: probably with your first transaction.
I have found this reference an INDISPENSIBLE tool.

I can't say enough about this reference. The pictures are Awesome, the prices
are right on the mark and the patterns are WELL represented. I have used this
book EVERY day since it arrived in my mailbox over a year ago. If you purchase
only one book on the subject this is the one to buy.
One of his best! Don't miss books by this author!

I think this is the book I like the most from Gene Florence. Lots of pictures. Well

Excellant tool for Depression Glass novice or collector
