This is a comprehensive survey of the history of glasshouses. The book traces the evolution of glass enclosures from the mid 16th-century, through the technical advances in the early 19th century, the advent of mass production and specialist component systems, the fashioning of modular constructions such as the Crystal Palace became possible.
