This is a fascinating trawl through the Midwinter history, coupled with a really splendid selection of many of their products. Many of today's collectors will have had, though probably not kept, many of these items and it was this, indeed, which sparked off my interest once again.
The book was first published in 1997 with a second edition in 2003. This is fine as far as it goes but it desn't go far enough. This is not the fault of the author and the book is a great starting point for the new collectors of Midwinter. It has certainly given me some very worthwhile information.
Thankfully, I am given to understand that a new edition is in process as more information and photographs have become available since the earlier publications. I can't wait but I'll have to so, for the moment, this book will serve very nicely thank you and I must curb my impatience. In the meantime, I am now armed with some great detail about the ranges I wish to try to obtain. If only there was a price guide, too.
