Great book lots of info.I love it so much I keep it on my coffee table.
As always Judith Miller has come through with this book too. It is so informative and the pictures are great. Judith really knows her stuff.
I was not pleased with this book. It is all about British collectables and I couldn't find many items in the book that I have in my collections. I reread the book descriptions and found no wording that said it was all English information.I wasn't pleased with the book. Others might enjoy it.
My wife really enjoyed this book, and found many informative bits of information to help sort out "treasures" from clutter!
This was purchased as a gift for amateur collectors. I can only say it has a lot of information on a very large number of collectibles, in a wide range of subjects.
it was not what i had in mind. was looking for pricing. so it was so and ok i guess
I liked looking through this book---it was certainly enjoyable to browse, but I can't see it being any real use to anyone interested in collecting. For serious collectors, it would be far too general, attempting to cover many, many areas from Star Wars to Art Deco to lamps to Pez. For non-serious collectors such as myself, it's frustrating, as the tone and advice is aimed obviously at SERIOUS collectors with money to burn. There is barely an item pictured that is priced at a level that one without a good deal of funds could start out buying as a collectible. Also, the book seems to avoid mentioning the buying sources that most beginning buyers would use---lawn sales, thrift stores and ebay, instead focusing on auctions and antique stores and dealers. There is also a heavy British feel to the book. There's a whole section on Dinky Cars, another on Queen Elizabeth II collectibles.

I don't mean to say this is not a well put together and very interesting book. It really is, and I think most even casual collectors will enjoy looking at it, but I don't think it's of much use in really helping anyone decide what to buy, sell or keep!
