I have attached our bibliography for ancient glass, including Roman glass and another that puts glass in a cultural context. 

Our three-volume set covering the Corning Museum of Glass collection of Roman Glass (by David Whitehouse) also includes an extensive bibliography. 

This exhibition catalog provides a thorough background to Roman glass: Harden, Donald B.; Hellenkemper, Hansgerd; Painter, Kenneth; and Whitehouse, David. Glass of the Caesars. Milan: Olivetti, 1987. Exhibition: The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, N.Y.; The British Museum, London; Römisch-Germanisches Museum, Cologne. 

Whitehouse's Glass of the Roman Empire is an overview with illustrations from the CMoG glass collection. 

There are many scholarly books and archeological reports, and journals that go into greater depth. Please let me know if you wish to pursue any of these. Or, you may wish to browse the library collections using our online catalog.

If you wish to obtain copies of any of the items in our list, please contact your local library. The Rakow Research Library is a member of the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC); your library can contact us through OCLC or they may mail an Interlibrary Loan form to us. You may request up to five items at a time. We send photocopies of articles and microfiche copies of our books (if they have been microfilmed) through Interlibrary Loan for four weeks use. 

Please let us know if we can help you again.
