There is a book I really really want.  I was trying to track it down for quite a while off of something close to its English name translation as related to me by William Gudenrath in a phone conversation last fall. I couldn't find the book until today when I ran across a reference to it in an article in one of the Journals of Glass Studies. Because unless you search for it in German it is impossible to find. D'oh. The book is: Phönix aus Sand und Asche, Glas des Mittelalters. I am having a huge case of really really really want its. Mostly because it apparently has lots of good stuff on early goblets. But I am sure there is lots of other good stuff in there too. Sadly, the least expensive copy I've tracked down so far is $113 and would have to be shipped from Germany. Grrr. Ah well, time for some inter-library loan fun to make sure it is worth saving up for I guess...

I can relate, there is a couple german wood finds books that I wanted but couldn't justify. And there wasn't any one ILL either.

Probably OK, I don't read German.
