This comprehensive 'Bibliography of Glass' is a compilation of 3,500 selected books alongside several important articles and other sources on glass and glassmaking in various languages from the earliest times to the present (2011). It is an exceptional work of reference and compendium in terms of the world-wide overview it provides of books on glass, glass technology, the art of glass, glassware, glass collections, exhibition catalogues, museum catalogues, sales catalogues and manuscripts relating to glass. This work of reference has been compiled for libraries, sellers of new and antiquarian books, collectors, historians, researchers, glass museums and any other institutions and individuals interested in ancient, antique or modern glass. A separate General Index and a Co-Authors Index facilitate the finding of titles and their authors as they relate to particular subjects. The works cited are arranged in alphabetical order according to authors' last names and any title lacking the name of the author has been included under the heading Anonymous. Four hundred and fifty museums from all over the world have been catalogued, creating a book within a book.

Wherever possible details of the authors, collectors, glass works, glass museums, institutions, companies, auctioneers and publishers are provided, with supplemental information such as their places of origin or business, age and dates of birth, death, foundation and closing. Titles of works are given in their original language and all works are provided with their dimensions (Height x Width) in cm. Text in English, German, French and Dutch.

Willy Van den Bossche was born in Belgium in 1943 where he graduated from the Industrial College of Mechlin (Mechelen) with a degree in industrial engineering in 1967 and then specialised in glass technology. For two years he worked as a plant engineer in the bottle making industry in Belgium. From 1971 until his retirement he worked as a Chief Patent Examiner in the field of glass technology at the European Patent Office (EPO). For more than 40 years he has been a serious collector of antique glass, as well as literature on glass, the art of glass and glassmaking from all over the world. The publication of this book marks the culmination of 10 years of research and work. He is also the author of the major reference book 'Antique Glass Bottles - Their History and Evolution (1500-1850) - A Comprehensive, Illustrated Guide - With a World-wide Bibliography of Glass Bottles' also published by Antique Collectors' Club in 2001.
