|Welcome to the
Gateway for Old Advertising Spirits Glasses.
This is an online version of the classic book by Barbara Edmonson. It was published in 1988.
The virtual version of OASG works much like the real book. It has the same number pages as in the hard copy (307) and each page has a scanned image of the original. Please have patience while the image loads. Each is around 100 kb in size, meaning it will take 15-20 seconds to transmit using a standard dial-up modem. The file size was required to preserve text resolution.
If you have a glass in hand and want to locate it, then
identify the first word on the glass (Edmonson's conventions are
reproduced here if you need guidance)
and then open the book by turning to
the online index. This provides links to every page in OASG
along with a brief description of the first entry on that page.
Thus, if you're looking for a glass with the label "Tea Cup
Whiskey", open the book and scroll
down to p. 176, which begins with the entry "Wm. Tate".
Clicking on either the title or page number takes you to the
relevant page and the glass of interest is entry #7 on the page. All
of the pages are linked together, so clicking on the links within
the page allows you to leaf forwards or backwards through the
book just in case your initial selection was mistaken.
