Chicago: The Art Glass Exchange, 1978. First Edition. Oversized. Illustrated throughout, with drawings, graphics, black & white photographs, and 69 full-color plates. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with some tiny tears and a hint of use. A study of the life and work of the great glass craftsman, Desire Christian, who designed and created during the latter part of the 19th century in Alsace-Lorraine (then a part of Germany) at the firm of Burgun, Schverer & Co. The book’s subtitle “Ghost for Galle” refers to the controversy that Desire Christian produced many of the exquisite glass objects that came to bear the signature of another great glass artist, Emile Galle, a debate about which the author concludes that Christian was indeed responsible for much of the work attributed to Galle. Whatever the truth may be does not detract from the incredible beauty of the work presented in this book - truly stunning. (Inventory #: 15094E)
