Sea Glass Chronicles Reviews
Last night I opened Sea Glass Chronicles to read a few pages, but found I couldn't put it down! This lovely book is a treasure, just like the "treasures" it describes in each chapter. After a few pages, I realized that Pat Hanbery's photographs were amazing as well! Enjoyable on several levels, it's a "coffee table" book that any age would enjoy simply for the browsing, but the writing and research by C.S. Lambert will take you much, much deeper into this hobby enjoyed by nearly everyone: beachcombing! It is an educational trip through the archaeology of beach glass, pottery, and doll fragments, caught in time before they were all altered by water's relentless task of reducing them into sand particles on a beach. Although there is a great deal of information, it is presented in quickly-readable short stories. This is a real "keeper" as well as a good gift idea.
A well- written and illustrated book on a fascinating subject. Got one for me and one for my "Bestie". We never tire of the beautiful pictures and stories behind them. The only drawback is not having all the "beauties" to covet ourselves! Maybe one day? Who knows
This is a good book for the beginner or full time sea glass collector. It tells about the different pieces of glass and antique shards you are likely to find on the beach along with the regular broken bottle pieces. It shows some beautiful pieces the writer has found with great pictures to go with it. The writer also described the history of the pieces. Some examples of pieces found were Fiesta ware, old clay pipes, frozen charlottes, Blue Willow, ABC pottery, Mocha ware, and glass stoppers to name a few. I bought this book not knowing what it was about and was very pleasantly surprised!
good stories along with the pictures
In all of the time I have been purchasing from Amazon this is the only thing I have ever returned. I bought it with another book about sea glass which I did like. The content is mainly of pieces no one will ever find unless they are on an archeological expedition. It is devoted not only to sea glass but to fresh water inland glass. This lady found all of the pieces of a porcelain doll's head, how likely is that? She just is not a beach comber I suppose. The description is misleading. Don't buy this book if you are a SEA Glass collector.
Great book for seasoned collectors and those just starting to collect! All the pictures are wonderful and the writing is easy to understand and enjoy!
Purchased for a gift! Item came as described.
This book has an amazing story and the pictures are wonderful. I hope to get to the beaches in FL and look for some of the glass they talk about in this book. Wish me luck!
