Westward Ho Publishing presents Gillinder & Sons Westward Ho Early American Pattern Glass reference book. The complete original pattern of 1879 photograph in detail.

The book measures 8"x11" with a laminated soft cover. Approximately 140 pages with 60 black and white photos or plates. One plate in color to show the child mugs in blue. All plates are numbered to correspond to the plate reference list. Plate reference listing will give you critical measurements and a rarity rating on a scale of 1 thru 10+.


The photos are large,clear and detailed, done in high definition photography and printing. Many items shown have rarely been seen. A reproduction summary is also noted. The pictures alone will help you distinguish the original items from the reproductions made. This book can also be used as a journal. The reverse side of the plate page is set up as a note page. You can list or add any other information that may be important to you, {price paid, location purchased, keeping a log of your collection.} First of its kind, dealing in detail with just this pattern, as many of our EAPG books are great sources of information, they deal with many patterns and can be somewhat vague. Limited printing.


The book is formated as a reference and identification book. No prices listed. A price guide will only outdate the book as prices change over the years. I am glad to say, after some 250 copies sold and many positive comments. The book has done exactly what i was hoping it would, to spark an interest in new collectors and help identify the many reproductions sold here on ebay as old.
