This is a valuable record of the Belcher mosaic process.  The original catalogue is 8” x 10 1/2.”   Each page of the original is printed in black ink on heavy-weight watercolor paper, then hand-colored in watercolor.  All pages are present, although the damage caused by a fire can also be seen. Both covers are missing and the pages are warped and smoke-stained.  One sketch for a window was mounted on gray board and inserted between pages.  Page 61, a three-lancet window, is a gate-fold page, with the folded edge at the top.  The price list is not bound into the catalogue, but is included.

The Berkshire Glass Works

The Berkshire Glass Works

Price: $21.95    S&H: $4.95

The History Press, 2011. Paper, 6"x 9", 159 pages, illus., index. The purity of the sand found in Northern Berkshire County provided resources for over fifty years of glass making for regular windows and stained glass windows in the rural landscape of western Massachusetts. From its first cylinders blown in November 1853 the demand for the Berkshire Glass Company’s work grew exponentially until they were producing 3,000 feet of glass by 1855. As the Civil War raged, the company suffered along with the country, but came out of the strife stronger than ever. Join authors Julie L. Sloan and William J. Patriquin as they reveal the inner workings of the Berkshire Glass Company and the intricate stained glass born of Berkshire glass. Leonardo Reviews


The Windows of Saint Thomas Church

The Windows of Saint Thomas Church

Price: $35.00    S&H: $7.00

The stained-glass windows of Saint Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, New York, were created between 1927 and 1974.  The project to restore them began in 2007.  Through the re-installation of the final window in 2016, over 10,000 square feet of glass passed through the hands of twelve stained-glass studios around the country.  The restoration project included over a half million pieces of glass depicting Jesus, saints, angels, prophets, ministers, a pope, scientists, builders, devils, animals, and flowers.  Most of the windows were designed and fabricated by James Powell & Sons, Whitefriars, London, with several other windows by Nicola D'Ascenzo and the last window by the Willet Studio, both of Philadelphia.  The book describes both the history and restoration of the windows, and illustrates every window individually, laying out their complex iconography.
