You are welcome to visit our library and examine the glass covers on the two books we own with glass bindings.  There is an additional title which has stained glass embedded in the cover, which I have listed below.  We have other books with glass beads in the spine, glass crystals embedded in the cover, etc., but only the two that I am aware of that have glass bindings.

Lang-Sims, Lois. Canterbury Cathedral : mother Church of Holy Trinity. London : Cassell, 1979. 166 p., [4] leaves of plates : ill. (some col.) ; 26 cm.  copy 1 has a piece of stained glass embedded in the cover.

Paulsson, Gregor, 1889-1977.  Modernt svenskt glas : utveckling, teknik, form [under redaktion av Professor Gregor Paulsson]. Stockholm : Jonson & Winter, [1943] CMGL c. 4 is no. 120 of 300 copies, and is bound with glass covers. The front cover is engraved with entwined initials "EE" and the page edges have been gilded.

Kappler, Dieter, 1940- Schott 1884-2009 : vom Glaslabor zum Technologiekonzern. Schott achtzehn hundert vier und achtzig bis zwei tausend und neun.  Mainz : H. Schmidt, [2009]. Covers made of Schott Ceran glass.


We don't actively seek to purchase books unless they pertain to the subject of glass, so there might be more books out there with glass covers which we wouldn't have come across as we look for material on our topic.

Please let me know if you need further information!
