Table of Contents
The Wonder of Perfume follows upon the success of our previous books, beginning with The Beauty of Perfume in 1996 and following our 2003 book, A Passion for Perfume Bottles. As in all our previous books, we have tried to give our readers a valuable resource for perfume bottle collecting. Over the last fourteen years, Monsen and Baer publications have given collectors dozens of valuable research articles on the history of perfume companies and glass makers, in addition to photos and descriptions of thousands of perfume bottles.
The Wonder of Perfume offers collectors an astonishing array of perfume bottles and atomizers by the American companies DeVilbiss, Pyramid, and Volupt, as well as an astonishing array of rarities of the commercial type, particularly in the categories of Baccarat and Lalique. The auction will finish with a tour de force of Czechoslovakian bottles.
Our overall goal in publishing books on perfume bottles is to provide the collector with a resource for collecting and research that can be used over and over again, not only on the documentation of perfume bottles and their current value, but also on their history and their makers. The hardcover book format provides a durable object for collectors to use and re-use. Our goal here goes beyond merely selling perfume bottles, though of course we wish to do that and to do it well. In a very real sense, we want to produce for collectors something that we, as collectors ourselves, would value and find useful-something we would want to own and keep on our bookshelf. Our sincere wish is that other collectors use it, learn from it, and enjoy it. What we have said in the past bears repeating here: Knowledge--and the sharing of it--enhances the pleasure of collecting.
