Bontemps on Glass Making

BONTEMPS ON GLASS MAKING: the Guide du Verrier of Georges Bontemps Translated by Michael Cable 624 pages including black and white figures, ISBN 978-0-900682-60-5 Georges Bontemps (1799–1884) was probably the most skilful and adventurous European glass works manager of his age. His life began inauspiciously because he was illegitimate and ignored by his father, a graduate of the École polytechnique and army officer. In 1817 Georges was refused entry to the École polytechnique, despite having done well in the entry examination. Bontemps then became assistant to Dartigues, owner of three separate works making lead crystal, and was soon managing the glass making at Baccarat. By 1822 he was directing the glass works at Choisy-le-Roi which was unusual in making several kinds of glass including window glass, lead crystal, domestic wares such as drinking glasses, stained glass windows, and optical glass. At Choisy-le-Roi he was responsible for several major advances. He remained there until 1848 when he moved to England to work for Chance Brothers in Smethwick for six years before returning to France. His Guide du Verrier, published in 1868, is the most detailed known authoritative description of the glass making practices of his time. Its seven sections describe the techniques of glass melting and making window glass, plate glass, bottles, lead crystal, optical glass, and stained glass windows. Bontemps had firsthand experience of all of these except making cast plate. Dozens of batch recipes are given, especially of coloured glasses. The book is copiously illustrated. One of its unique features is an analysis of the economics of the process at the end of each section.

The Worlds Famous Book on Glass Making (The Art of Glass)

The Worlds Famous Book on Glass Making (The Art of Glass)

Antonio Neri Professor Michael Cable has edited a new collected volume including the renowned translation by Christopher Merrett of L'Arte Vetraria by Antonio Neri. Merrett translated the Italian's book in 1662, adding his own observations which were almost as long as the original text. "The World's Most Famous Book on Glassmaking" was then quickly translated into Latin, German, French and Spanish and was used as a reference source for glass makers for the next 100 years. To mark the book's 300th year, Professor W E S Turner read a paper to the 1962 Annual General Meeting: "A notable British seventeenth-century contribution to the literature of glassmaking," later published in Glass Technology. This has been included in the volume as well as a preface by the Editor. The volume reproduces the original layout of The Art of Glass on an A5 format. 2001, A5 (210 mm × 148 mm), 436 pages , ISBN 0-900682-37-X. Paperback.

Apsley Pellatt on Glass Making

Apsley Pellatt on Glass Making

APSLEY PELLATT (1791-1863) was a well-known London glass-maker who took over the family firm in 1826 on the death of his father. Early in his career he developed a technique for encapsulating ceramic medallions in glass which led to his first publication in 1821. He was keenly interested in all aspects of glass making and became an acknowledged authority on its history but he was as interested in the latest developments and that led him to offer Michael Faraday the facilities of his works for the latter�s early experiments on making optical glass. He is today chiefly remembered for his copiously illustrated Curiosities of Glass Making published in 1849 which he addressed to the interested public. In it he explained the methods used to make many different types of glass ware. Six colour plates showed many notable pieces of ancient glass including the Naples vase, as impressive a demonstration of Roman skills as the Portland vase. Pellatt was a public-spirited man who for some years served on the Common Council of the City of London and, towards the end of his life, was a Member of Parliament. This volume, the fourth in this chronological series, includes all known publications by Apsley Pellatt and his father, Apsley senior, who has until now been ignored in the literature. 300 pages, 156x234 mm, softback, black and white illustrations and colour plates.
