This is a substantially revised edition of Arwas's previous book of the same title ( LJ 12/15/78). Outstanding color photographs of pieces from museums, galleries, and private collections have been added, increasing the illustrations by 75 percent. Many of the articles on manufacturers have been enlarged and updated to reflect current scholarship. The articles are well balanced, covering smaller firms but emphasizing such major firms as Tiffany and Lalique, and historical information on glass production and fakes, facsimiles of artists' signatures, and a glossary are also included. Highly recommended for decorative arts collections, particularly those having the earlier edition.Constance Ashmore Fairchild, Univ. of Illinois Lib., Urbana-Champaign
