Although this is a cute little book with nice pictures, it is lacking in content. Too much history and not enough pictures of what is available today. It did not include any monetary values, not enough pictures of miniatures from the past 25 years, not very interesting ...actually it was nice to look at once, but otherwise a waste of money. I have about 40 of these little bottles and only about 8 were pictured in the book. Pay a little more and get a true reference book.
I like this book because I collect miniature perfume bottles and needed a reference guide to help me identify what I have. It has lots of pictures and descriptive words to describe the bottles, their origins. Worth it.
This book was disappointing because it has an inadequate range and many famous perfumes are absent. It is frustating to read because the names of the perfumes are hidden in the text, not even in bold type and you have to hunt for them. No information about who designed the bottles in most cases.
Good reference for a narrow market.
