Once again, I'm passing along info some folks here will be interested in. I stand to gain nothing from any sale.

First, "Heaton, Butler & Bayne - 100 Years of SG" from 1986. I've never seen this book, don't know if it's any good, but it's about some very important historical figures who get lots of screen-time here. It seems to be in pretty good condition. It's $60 with free shipping.
See the details here:

Next, Robert Sowers' "The Lost Art", a classic book by a classic authority. $13 plus $3.43 shipping - 17 days left. This is a must have for your sg library - ask any one! A great read and a great price (IMHO). Check it out:

Have fun - Tod

Nice to see that someone grabbed the HB&B book - I hope it was someone from this forum acting on my notice. I do understand why these postings seldom get replies. It becomes sort of a poker game and we need to play it close to the vest! Don't want to make the book seem even more desirable.

I posted a link to Dick Millard's book on painting on the Stained Glass Forum, BTW. It doesn't come up often on ebay.
Fair warning: Also note that there are several other sites where sg books are listed and ebay doesn't always have the best pricing or condition! - Tod

I hope you enjoy it. I bet it has some great pictures. I did a G-search and found this:
http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/food-and-drink/reviews/heaton-butler-and-bayne-floral-street-london-8618050.html
It's a restaurant in the old HB&B factory in London!

The Sowers book is also gone. Wonderful! - Tod

Many of my stained glass books (some that I got from your tips, Tod) were soaked in a flood at my shop last month. :(
