On the back cover:

As more and more people feel the urge to possess objects of age or beauty, so the pieces of antiques soar beyond the pockets of many people. Bottles, however, have remained comparatively inexpensive. In Victorian times our forebears packed everything from tea to hair restorer in glass bottles, and they discarded them with their household refuse. In rubbish dumps all over Britain these bottles are waiting to be dug up, each non-machine-made bottle a collector's item. This book describes the development of bottles of all sorts and illustrates over two hundred examples.
