    It was my hope that at least one person would find it of interest or value.

    I noticed that the “Possibly related posts (automatically generated)” WordPress feature suggested that this one was related to a post called “Procrastination” written by somebody else.

    At any rate, I live near a glass museum, in fact, and I found this dusty old tome very interesting stuff. Thanks for posting.
