Pioneer Stiegel Glass Wo r k in a Paperback
That American glass is, today,
highly prized for its beauty and
artistry is no mere accident of
history. In a long, unbroken line
stretching from Stiegel to Libby,
fine c r aft s m en have labored
against seemingly insurmountable
odds (a lack of public patronage,
poor pot-clay, a shortage of work-
ers, etc.) to fashion an industry
equal to those of the finest in
Until the turn of the century,
however, critics and collectors
were surprisingly apathetic to
American glass. As late as 1900,
only one book existed on the sub-
ject: at that time, too, the wares
of "Baron" Henry William Stiegel
(1729-1785), one of the most famous
of all American glass-makers, were
virtually unknown. That this extra-
ordinary craftsman was finally
hailed for his artistry is largely
due to the efforts of pioneer his-
torian Frederick William Hunter,
in his 1914 work "Stiegel Glass."
The book ranges over Stiegel's
life, his work and the whole ques-
tion of glass-making in Colonial
America — techniques, types, fac-
In November. McGraw-Hill will
publish the fourth novel by a young
Israeli author, Miss Yael Dayan.
Her hook, DEATH HAD TWO
SONS. is a story set in contempor-
ary Israel and tells how Haim Kal-
insky. a man who was forced by
the Nazis to choose between his
two sons—one to live, the other to
die—is reunited with his son, Dan-
iel.the one he had rejected.
Yael Dayan, an officer in the
Israeli Army reserves, was to leave
for Vietnam recently, where she
was to work as a reporter for an
Israeli evening newspaper. She
changed her plans and departed
for Greece, immediately following
the overthrow of the government
by military forces there, but was
only in Athens a short time when
the rapid flare-up of the Israeli-
Arab conflict decided her to return
to her native country. She re-enlist-
