Augusta On Glass by Bill Baab

This highly detailed and profusely illustrated new volume caps 35 years of historical research and development by Bill Baab, long-time collector of Augusta bottles, and the FOHBC's well-known Southern Region editor.  Augusta On Glass is chock full of well-written company and bottler histories, plus color and black-and-white photographs of bottles and related go-with items, advertisements, and vintage photos.  Subtitled "Drops of history from glass and pottery containers used by soda water manufacturers, whiskey distillers, beer brewers, mineral water sellers and patent medicine men in and around Augusta, Georgia," collectors, archaeologists, and history buffs can only wish there were
similar reference sources for all states/cities/towns.  Hopefully publication of
Augusta On Glass will inspire others to start/finish similar efforts for their particular area(s) of interest.

The accompanying images show the front cover, examples of vintage advertisements and photos, and typical bottle illustrations.

Published 2007, laminated soft cover, comb bound, 8.5" x 11" and 83 information-packed pages.  $40.00 each postpaid includes Media Mail shipping.  Send check (must clear bank before book is mailed) or money order to:
