Nevada History Through Glass  
The Nevada Bottle book
Volume 1
by Fred Holabird

The Nevada Bottle Book by Fred Holabird is the long awaited revised edition of Fred and Jack Haddock's "Nevada Bottle Book" published in 1979.

This new book by Fred is so much more than the original manuscript released back in 1979. The Nevada Bottle Book is much more than just a bottle identification and pricing book. This book is packed with facts and interesting stories about the history of the companies and people who made and used the bottles that have been found in Nevada. It also includes information about the towns and regions that sprang up from mining strikes, transportation hubs and much needed agricultural growing areas.
The text and fantastic color pictures are complimented by copies of billheads and receipts, pictures of tokens and sidebars of additional information.

I throughly enjoyed reading this book and it will go in my library of western related research books to be enjoyed through the years. This is a must have book if you are interested in Nevada bottles or Nevada history.
