Learn about the history and design of stained glass, this library contains a collection of {27} twenty-seven vintage How To Books on one Gift Quality CD.

Stained glass, as an art and a craft, requires the artistic skill to conceive an appropriate and workable design, and the engineering skills to assemble the piece. A window must fit snugly into the space for which it is made, must resist wind and rain, and also, especially in the larger windows, must support its own weight. Many large windows have withstood the test of time and remained substantially intact since the late Middle Ages. In Western Europe they constitute the major form of pictorial art to have survived. In this context, the purpose of a stained glass window is not to allow those within a building to see the world outside or even primarily to admit light but rather to control it. For this reason stained glass windows have been described as 'illuminated wall decorations'.

1840 Concise Account of Stained Glass
~ Being the principle works in stained glass that have been executed by THOMAS WILLEMENT of London, Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries.
~ 89 pages.

1908 Stained Glass Tours in England
~ The purpose of this book is the quest of windows, it happens that these very windows are so obligingly dis- posed throughout the length and breadth of England, and light such different sorts of edifices, that in the search of them we shall obtain a very comprehensive idea of English architecture. Not only shall we visit many noble cathedrals (Canterbury, York, Winchester, Wells, &c. &c.), and smaller religious edifices (Fairford, St. Neot, Norbury, &c.), but we shall also see secular buildings of many types. In this latter category will be included both the great universities of Oxford and Cambridge, a civic guild- hall (Coventry), an ancient hostel for the aged (Guildford), and one of the finest of the "stately homes of England
~ 342 pages.

1908 Stained Glass Tours in France
~

1909 A Study of Residential Stained Glass

~ 374 pages.

1909 Windows - A Book About Stained Glass
~ A stained glass window is itself the best possible illustration of the difference it makes whether we look at a thing from this side or from that. Goethe used this particular image in one of his little parables, comparing poems to painted windows, dark and dull from the market-place, bright with colour and alive with meaning only when we have crossed the threshold of the church. I may claim to have entered the sanctuary, and not irreverently. My earliest training in design was in the workshops of artists in stained glass. For many years I worked exclusively at glass design, and for over a quarter of a century I have spent great part of my leisure in hunting glass all Europe over.
~ 488 pages.

1913 Ancient Stained Glass
~ The initial difficulty in the way of acquiring correct notion of the value and use of stained and painted glass is the fact that the old coloured windows our only trustworthy guides have come own to our time in so fragmentary a state. Take, with one or two exceptions, any old parish church in England, very seldom is all the old glass left even in a single window.
~ 188 pages.

1913 Stained Glass
~ Glass painting and staining history.
~ 497 pages.

1913 Stained Glass Tour of Italy
~ A tour of stained glass in Italy.
~ 286 pages.

1920 Stained Glass Workbook
~ The author must be permitted to explain Author's that he undertook his task with some reluctance, and to say a word by way of explaining his position. I have always held that no art can be taught by books, and that an artist's best way of teaching is directly and personally to his own pupils, and maintained these things stubbornly and for long to those who wished this book written. But I have such respect for the good judgment of those who have, during the last eight years, worked in the teaching side of the art and craft movement, and, in furtherance of its objects, have commenced this series of handbooks, and such a belief in the movement, of which these persons and circumstances form a part, that I felt bound to yield on the condition of saying just what I liked in Author's my own way, and addressing myself only Preface to students, speaking as I would speak to a class or at the bench, careless of the general reader. You will find yourself, therefore, reader, addressed as "Dear Student"
~ 398 pages.
