Float Pilkingtons' glass revolution by David J Bricknell

The invention and exploitation of the float process is 'one of the great process inventionss of the [twentieth] century' and its magic gave the world the capability of making a valuable, invisible product more cheaply than ever before.  This fascinating new book explores how it was the Pilkington Brothers, one of the smallest of the plate glass producers, came to be the dominant force in the world of glass, through a mixture of brilliant inventiveness, skill, bravery hard work and luck.

Glass to Metal Seals by Ian Donald

The primary purpose of this new monograph is to provide a thorough review of glass-to-metal seals, with particular reference to the more recent developments in the scientific, technical and commercial fields. Current applications for glass-to-metal seals are extraordinarily diverse, ranging from the humble, taken-for-granted light bulb to complex aerospace and military components developed within the last few years. New applications also continue to emerge where the unique properties of these systems can be exploited. It is also the purpose of this monograph to highlight new and emerging fields which are benefiting from the application of glass-to-metal seal and related technologies. In this respect, the scope of the monograph has been broadened to include the related topic of glass-to-metal coatings. In addition, the more recent and highly versatile glass-ceramic-to-metal systems are reviewed. Some of the newer ceramic-to-metal, glass-to-glass, glass-to-ceramic and ceramic-to-ceramic systems are also covered briefly, areas very much in their infancy in 1949. Published April 2007, 234 mm × 156 mm, 338 pages with colour and black and white illustrations, ISBN 0-900682-56-6

Practising Stained Glass Safely

M Stanton Harris Very little data has been collected on health and safety in stained glass, the small amount that exists has gone either unnoticed or undiscovered, therefore, the information collected and researched here should be of benefit. This book has been prepared for the purpose of promoting a safer place of work for anyone who now or in the future, intends to find employment in stained glass work. It does not pretend to be a technical manual on health and safety matters, but is intended to be a useful guide to highlight the dangers when working with hazardous materials in everyday use, and provides directions towards working within the Approved Code of Practice (ACoP). Awareness is the key to a long and fruitful working life, and this simple guideline will, if anything, draw attention to, and generate safer working practices, ensuring the continuation of this ancient art form. 2000, A5 (210 mm × 148 mm), 48 pages with colour illustrations throughout. ISBN 0-900682-26-4. Paperback.

The Worlds Famous Book on Glass Making (The Art of Glass)

Antonio Neri Professor Michael Cable has edited a new collected volume including the renowned translation by Christopher Merrett of L'Arte Vetraria by Antonio Neri. Merrett translated the Italian's book in 1662, adding his own observations which were almost as long as the original text. "The World's Most Famous Book on Glassmaking" was then quickly translated into Latin, German, French and Spanish and was used as a reference source for glass makers for the next 100 years. ISBN 0-900682-37-X. Paperback.
