Books about paperweights

Maybe 50 books about paperweights have been written in the last 80 years. The authors reflected the understanding and extent of knowledge at the time of writing: further studies and research over the last 30 years have shown that there are significant errors and omissions in many of these earlier books - and even in some very recent ones! The older books make interesting reading, but they are not always reliable.
