View full size -- Thomas Haunton has written and published the first volume of "Last Links to the Past - 20th Century South Jersey Glass," which is dedicated exclusively to glass made by the Clevengers, largest of the region's historic backyard glass-making businesses. The second volume is coming.

"The Clevengers' glass has earned considerable notoriety among enthusiasts of early American glass for its ability to blur the boundaries of what a reproduction is supposed to look like," says Haunton, who resides in Wilmington, Mass. "Last Links is the first book to document the prodigious output of this small company."
