Journal of Glass Studies, Vol. 44

This volume features a look at glassmaking operations in medieval Tyre, Lebanon, that were uncovered in an extensive excavation. In addition, although Corning, New York, has long been a glassmaking center, its neighbor to the east, Elmira, also has a glass history, as Norma P.H. Jenkins reports. Also, important recent acquisitions, with photos, are noted.
