by: Paul Hollister & Dwight P. Lanmon

168 pages, $95.00 hardcover $ 60.00 soft cover

The finest group of antique paperweights ever assembled was exhibited at the Corning Museum of Glass in 1978 in a show known as The Great Paperweight Show. Those rare weights, drawn from collections all over the world will never be seen as a group again. This catalogue of the exhibition is the most stunning paperweight book ever printed. All of the weights in the show are illustrated full size, in full color against black pages. This book is thoroughly researched and a visual feast. If your paperweight library is limited to 5 books, this has to be one of them!
