This monograph aims to rectify that situation by documenting the early days of Scottish glass production from the granting of the first patent in 1610 up to the mid-18th century.

The fascinating history of art glass in this Period begins in the 1880's with the precursors to Art Nouveau, follows the creations of Galle, Daum and Muller Freres. It continues with the development of opalescent, frosted and clear molded glass -- especially Lalique, Art Deco, functionalism, Orrefors and English and Scottish glass. But it is above all the glass itself, beautifully reproduced in full color, that brings to life one of the most exciting and creative periods in the history of art glass.

Isobel Armstrong's startlingly original and beautifully illustrated book tells the stories that spring from the mass-production of glass in nineteenth-century England. Moving across technology, industry, local history, architecture, literature, print culture, the visual arts, optics, and philosophy, it will transform our understanding of the Victorian period. The mass production of glass in the nineteenth century transformed an ancient material into a modern one, at the same time transforming the environment and the nineteenth-century imagination. It created a new glass culture hitherto inconceivable. Glass culture constituted Victorian modernity. It was made from infinite variations of the prefabricated glass panel, and the lens. The mirror and the window became its formative elements, both the texts and constituents of glass culture. The glassworlds of the century are heterogeneous. They manifest themselves in the technologies of the factory furnace, in the myths of Cinderella and her glass slipper circulated in print media, in the ideologies of the conservatory as building type, in the fantasia of the shopfront, in the production of chandeliers, in the Crystal Palace, and the lens-made images of the magic lantern and microscope. But they were nevertheless governed by two inescapable conditions. First, to look through glass was to look through the residues of the breath of an unknown artisan, because glass was mass produced by incorporating glassblowing into the division of labour. Second, literally a new medium, glass brought the ambiguity of transparency and the problems of mediation into the everyday. It intervened between seer and seen, incorporating a modern philosophical problem into bodily experience. Thus for poets and novelists glass took on material and ontological, political, and aesthetic meanings. Reading glass forwards into Bauhaus modernism, Walter Benjamin overlooked an early phase of glass culture where the languages of glass are different. The book charts this phase in three parts. Factory archives, trade union records, and periodicals document the individual manufacturers and artisans who founded glass culture, the industrial tourists who described it, and the systematic politics of window-breaking. Part Two, culminating in glass under glass at the Crystal Palace, reads the glassing of the environment, including the mirror, the window, and controversy round the conservatory, and their inscription in poems and novels. Part Three explores the lens, from optical toys to 'philosophical' instruments as the telescope and microscope were known. A meditation on its history and phenomenology, Victorian Glassworlds is a poetics of glass for nineteenth-century modernity.

The Design Encyclopedia is a compendium of the world of modern design over the last century and a half. Compiled from a number of primary and secondary sources by the American author and design historian Mel Byers, in consultation with an international team of design experts, this illustrated design reference guide provides the essential framework for a field that continues to generate intense interest worldwide. In this volume are all the essential facts pertaining to modern design: furniture and product design, graphic design, objects designed by architects, and the various styles and schools of design of the late nineteenth, twentieth, and early twenty-first centuries. With 832 pages and more than 700 full-color illustrations presenting the last 130 years in the history of the design of furniture, lighting, fabrics, ceramics, glassware, metalware, objects in a range of other materials, and mechanical, electrical, and electronic appliances, as well as automobiles and some inventions, this essential reference supplants Mr. Byers's earlier overview of the history of design, published in 1994. It is, however, not merely larger than its predecessor but more comprehensive, easier to navigate, and keenly focused. Here design is considered in terms of its concrete application to functional objects, relating it to craft, decorative arts, and industrial design but distinguishing it from fine art and theory. There are separate entries for designers and craftspeople, design studios, consortiums and partnerships, noteworthy manufacturers, significant historical periods and styles, and materials. The various discrete entries are organized alphabetically, and are cross-referenced where applicable. Most of the full-color illustrations are drawn from the world-renowned design collection of The Museum of Modern Art; the remainder are drawn from the Quittenbaum Kunstauktionen in Munich and Hamburg. This invaluable publication is the one essential guide for the design professional, the student, and the interested observer of design in our time.
