Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Victorian times, our forebears packed everything from tea to hair restorer in glass bottles, and they discarded them with their household refuse.

This book describes the development of bottles of all sorts and illustrates over two hundred examples.

About the Author

Nigel Harvey read history at Exeter College, Oxford, worked on a farm and later on a reclamation scheme, where, thanks to a consignment of heavy Lease-Lend tractors, he became one of the first men ever to plough one acre of British soil in one hour. He trained as a land agent and spent thirty years on the staff first of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, then of the Agricultural Research Council, retiring in 1976. He wrote various books on farming and on farming history. He was the Chairman of the Historic Farm Buildings Group and Honorary Librarian of the Royal Agricultural Society of England.
