I just bought 4 different books on collecting bottles and the one thing this book has that the others do not, is lots of pictures. This REALLY helps especially when you are a beginning collector like myself. The descriptions are a bit short (for example, in other books they tell you size and color of the specific bottle) while this one usually does not go into that amount of detail. But for [price], this book really surprised me. I have to say that even though it does have its downfalls in lack of detail, it makes up for it by its pictures. And trust me, I have 3 other books and they probably contain an average of 20 pictures per book. This one has about 3-4 pictures every other page. I do not recommend this book if you are looking for just ONE reference to go by but if you are buying it as a companion reference, I highly recommmend it.
I was impressed with the almost 4,000 bottles listed in this book. I was disappointed, however, in the limited number of pictures the author used. Several were very difficult to see and the descriptions were rather vague. The book is small enough in size to be taken along when shopping for old bottles and I find this to be very helpful. In the front of the book there are very brief tips on identifying, buying and selling bottles. I found these tips to be short but informative. I am only a novice to bottle collecting but I think this book would be good for a beginner or a veteran collector. My favorite feature of this book is its compact size. I like the fact that I can easily take it with me when I go shopping for bottles.
I found Clevelands Bottle Pricing Guide easy to use and I loved all the photos, which were very helpful. I did find information and pricing on some of my collection. However, I did not find any information on several of the bottles I'm researching which I thought fairly common. But, there are alot of old bottles out there. This book was informative and easy to use and is a welcome tool in my library.
I love all kinds of Glass! I have found a lot a glass bottles and this book has helped me to see if they are worth anything. Some of my finds are in this book but most are not. However I have gotten several more bottle books on .com. I am sure I will find what I need in time :)
Great reference book, I collect bottles and it's nice to take shopping to compare prices and look for treasures and compare with what you may have at home
