Publisher Atlanta, Ga. Hanson, Author Bethman, David. Publisher S. Author Linden, Robert A. Cooper, K. George Masters Thesis, University of Southern Denmark.

Covill, William E. Ink bottles and Inkwells. William S. Sullwold, Publishing, Tauton, MA. This book is certainly the best book on the subject that there is, though long out of print and relatively expensive to acquire though examples are around in some quantity. It pictures a couple thousand ink bottles of all types, and although light on historical information compared to the plethora of images, it does contain a lot of useful information. Creswick, Alice M. The Fruit Jar Works Vol. Extremely detailed work on fruit jars including history, great illustrations by her husband Howard, glassmaking information and more including good information on the dates of manufacture.
Unfortunately, both printings are out-of-print again and somewhat expensive to acquire. Although this book is very specialized fruit jars, as the title stated , it is a great identification guide — an attempt to catalog every fruit jar made during the period. This book could have been devised with archaeologists in mind it was not because of the way it is formatted. Almost every jar is illustrated, including the lids, bases, and reverse sides where embossing is present.
This is ideal for anyone dealing with fragmentary glass — as well as complete jars. Not only does Creswick include major variations, she showed even minor discrepancies. For example, she showed illustrations of 21 variations in basal markings on one variety of Mason jar. In addition, she provided descriptions that included the identification of the manufacturer when known and the date range of production. She often identified manufacturers and date ranges not found in other sources. She began her book with a brief history of canning and followed the identification section the main body of the book with an extensive appendix on patents and copyrights.
A second appendix although she did not use the term was a page list of fruit jar manufacturers that included many entries not found in any other sources I have reviewed. She finished with a brief history of jar makers from Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, in and historical sketches of several jar makers. My only complaint about the work is that it is out of print and quite expensive. The two-volume set is generally priced from ca. I have been unable to obtain a review copy of Volume II fruit jars after , but I suspect it contains the same high-quality information.

Farnsworth, Kenneth B. This very recently published and very scholarly work by two archaeologists with LOTS of help by many collectors and archaeologists is easily the best regional work ever completed on historic bottles. It concentrates on the area noted in the title - Illinois - between and - a significant period of American bottle making. The quality of the full color images, excellent illustrations, descriptive manufacturing details, historic information, and even the girth over pages and 8.
In the pages of this book, we describe and illustrate nearly 1, different Illinois embossed-bottle varieties produced before, during, and after the Civil War for close to Illinois merchants operating in over small towns and cities across the state, with populations ranging from just a few hundred souls to more than , people. Several small towns are represented by only a single embossed-bottle style used by one enterprising merchant.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, Chicago bottler John A. The authors have worked with historical archivists Eva Mounce and Curtis Mann to research the bottlers and bottled products included in our book—and 14 additional historical-research contributors have added their local and regional expertise and knowledge to help make the volume a reality. For example, the most extensive of these studies—which focuses only on embossed Illinois soda bottles dating from to the s—lists just six embossed sodas dating to the — period only three of which were recognized by the authors as dating to pre—Civil War times.
For the — period, previous publications document only 43 blob-top soda styles statewide. Our current study provides comprehensive historical and stylistic information on such bottles. Previous volumes list just 17 stamped stoneware bottles from Illinois, several of which were not identified as the product of Illinois bottlers at the time his publications appeared.
Our current study provides historical and stylistic information on 37 such bottles. Because of the scale and scope of the present volume and the limited utility of previously published sources, our focus has been to provide detailed information on bottle styles and their embossed lettering and bottle contents, in addition to the histories of Illinois bottlers who used these particular types of glass and stoneware containers. The product manufacture and use information provided within these pages, combined with information from the archaeological sites where complete and fragmentary examples of the bottles were discarded, will no doubt be of use for overview studies of consumer behavior and patterns of product movement.

The Bottle Trail , Vol. Chalfant Press, Bishop, CA. Though somewhat haphazard in organization, this series of booklets contain a wealth of excellent information on a host of different bottles and related subjects, especially glass makers and their marks.
Jones was a friend of Dr. Julian Toulouse and they collaborated on makers mark research. May Jones is one of the true pioneers of bottle research. Despite her isolation in the small town of Nara Vista, New Mexico, she built a network of bottle collectors that extended throughout the United States and included such noteworthy researchers as Grace Kendrick, author of The Antique Bottle Collector, itself a pioneer work in the field often cited by archaeologists and collectors and Julian Harrison Toulouse, reviewed later in this bibliography.
She wrote a total of nine lengthy newsletters between September and February Because she was unlettered, rural, and wrote in a rambling, colloquial style, many dismiss her work. They are foolish. Jones collected information from her vast network of collectors, wrote numerous letters to glass houses, breweries, food packagers, and others connected with glass containers. She was an inveterate reader and shared her knowledge freely. At this point, she made no attempt to be comprehensive but illustrated a number of marks along with her comments about them including a letter from a Mr.
Caroll of Anheuser Busch giving his opinions about marks that may have appeared on bottles used by that company. Volume 5. She included very few dates at that point but satisfied herself by attempting to match marks with factories. In this volume, she was also the first to illustrate the Owens-Illinois Glass Co. Volume 6. In Volume 6, Jones began to make a serious contribution. She produced two tables, one of older marks mostly from beer bottles , the other of more recent logos. The newer table identified 85 marks with appropriate companies, although she added very few dates.
The older table, however, included illustrations, company identification, and frequent dates for 38 marks along with several variations. Many of the dates were remarkably close to those used by Toulouse and ones we have subsequently discovered. Volume 9. In some cases, the information was quite impressive for the time. It included information I have still not found in any other source. She produced, for example, a large volume of information on the Missouri Glass Co. Toulouse completely ignored this information when compiling his data for the M.
After Volume 9, however, Jones faded into obscurity. Jones, Olive R. Cylindrical English Wine and Beer Bottles, Also produced in a French version. This book is an excellent source of information on the dating and classifying of early English liquor and beer bottles; the best the author has found on the subject.
