5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and informative 1 Dec 2012
By Spud
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book covers lots of different types of antique and collectibles and is full of little, useful nuggets of information. If you have a general interest in antiques and collectibles then this is a great book. If you are after a reference book on a specific type of antique, collectible or antiques from a specific era, it's still a good read but you might want to look elsewhere for more concise and detailed information.
