The small size of the book makes it easy to carry around. I used it as a teaching tool last week, and 2 wanted to purchase one immediately. This is one of the few books which discusses that all glass touted as "medieval" probalby is not, as least not entirely.....due to repairs, repainting, infilling with newer painted glass, etc. Many antique dealers were unaware of the multitude of changes and didn't know how to identify replacement glass.....makes for interesting reading!!
