This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

PREFACE 

The interest in historical flasks and bottles, and others of various colors 

and designs, is so widespread, that it has prompted me to compile this check 
list; 

Brief mention is made of the early bottle makers, as this is outside the 
scope of the book. 

So many minor variations occur in the decoration of flasks, that I deemed 
it advisable to mention the more important ones only. 

It was not thought necessary to mention every known color and size of the 
various bottles and flasks. 

Flasks in form of shells, pistols, shoes, cigars and others, are not mentioned, 
as they are considered of little interest. 

As many collectors are gathering Bitters, Medicine and other bottles and 
flasks, I have illustrated and described the best known ones. 

Diligent inquiry has been made of collectors throughout the United States, 
with whom I have compared notes in order to check up with them, although, 
for the most part, the illustrations are of bottles contained in my own collec- 
tion: and, if any collector has bottles that are not listed, I shall be pleased 
to hear from him, so that I can include them in a later edition of the book. 

Credit is due to the following Collectors and Museums for assistance in 
compiling the book: 

Mr. Van Winkle 
Mr. McKearin 
Dr. Hettrick 
Miss Meacham 
Mr. Kaufmann 
The Toledo Museum 
The Milwaukee Museum 
The Philadelphia Museum
