‘The Preservation of Historic Pigmented Structural Glass.’ There are sections on history of use, installation specifications, maintenance, replacement, substitute materials and an extended reading list. Very specific niche, but could be helpful in the right circumstance.

Published by Technical Preservation Services, part of National Park Service; partially adapted from the article, ‘Material Conservation for the Twentieth Century: The Case for Structural Glass’, written by Douglas A. Yorke, Jr., AIA, which appeared in the Bulletin for the Association for Preservation Technology, 13 (1981).
Online article/brief; print version available.
