I have been buying and selling items for years and this is my go to book for many items. A must for any dealer or serious collector. Well put together with plenty of pictures. If your only going to buy one or two reference books each year I feel this is the one to start with for an assortment of items. A good idea to select another specific to the items you are particularly interested in. Just as a note, my very first issue keyed me into an item that I ended up coming across at an estate sale. I purchased the item for a very low amount and sold it for a substantial profit and this would not have happened without having purchased this book.
Easier to use than Kovels.
I am an avid antique collector, and I want quality antiques. This book helps me to decide whether a purchase of something " old " is worth my money. Thanks ! Betty's Business
When you like to collect antiques and you are visual,this is a great book for you.You can really see pictures thouroughly,boldly and clearly.It also gives basic information that you need to know to distinguish fake from real antiques.So better grab this book now.
Great resource. Lots of colored photos and information on collectibles in many categories. Very pleased with the book and it's condition.
A really fascinating book to look through and use for researching the value of items that have been handed down through the family. Its a little addictive and everyone wants to flip through it.
Good read but little help for me for they address the most common items which can be found just as easily on line.
Fast delivery. Purchased this for my dad who like antiques. He enjoys the book, particularly the illustrations.
