The Lamps of Tiffany by Egon Neustadt might be expensive, but you can always resell this world standard reference book on Louis Comfort Tiffany and Tiffany Studios lamps and lighting if you ever want to- which you won't. First published in 1970, The Lamps of Tiffany remains the standard reference work on the complete range of lamp styles, designs and colors of the lamps and glass made at the Tiffany Studios. This large volume (13.5 by 10.5 inches, 6 pounds) was reprinted in 1993 from the original plates, and it includes includes 293 amazing illustrations (most of them color photographs) of the diverse array of Louis Comfort Tiffany lamps and lighting. Featured are some of the finest Tiffany Studios lamps in their rarest colors including the Dragonfly, Laburnum, Nautilus, Wisteria, Peony, Dogwood, Magnolia, Apple Blossom, Lily, and many more. The book is organized into sections illustrating and describing the glass, lamps, chandeliers, bases, fixtures, and markings on the original Tiffany collection of Dr. Neustadt and his wife Hildegard. Examples and photographs from other important collections and from the Tiffany Studios catalogue are also shown. Dr. Egon Neustadt, an orthodontist born in Austria in 1898, began collecting Tiffany lamps with his wife, Hildegard in 1935, when they purchased their first desk lamp in New York. Dr. Neustadt noted that when he brought his first lamp home and placed it on his desk, "Our friends didn't like it." Undaunted, Neustadt's interest in the leaded glass shades and bases became an all consuming passion, making him one of the the earliest serious enthusiasts of Tiffany lamps and assembling an encyclopedic collection. Dr. Neustadt's passion eventually led him to acquire some 500 crates of raw Tiffany glass in the 1960s, remnants of the Corona, NY glass factory left over after Tiffany Studios went bankrupt. In 1970, Dr. Neustadt first published his collection in this book The Lamps of Tiffany. Neustadt classified the different types of lamps and developed a nomenclature to describe the various categories of lamp designs. In 1983 Dr. Neustadt gave 135 lamps to The New York Historical Society, where a selection is on permanent exhibition. When he died in 1984, Neustadt's Manhattan apartment contained hundreds of Tiffany lamps and windows. This retained, private treasure has become the core collection of The Neustadt Museum of Tiffany Art which maintains a permanent exhibit at Queens Museum of Art in Flushing Meadows, Corona Park, Queens, on the site of the 1939 and 1964 Worlds Fairs.
