Over a period of 30+ years the Miller's antiques and collectables publications have become the most popular and trusted definitive price guides of their type, and this latest `Miller's Antiques Handbook & Price Guide 2014-2015' reaches a peak of perfection. It is beautifully presented with thousands of superb illustrations of objects in full colour, neat informative text, and division into helpful sections with category headings to supplement an authoritative index. In addition to the wealth of advice and guidance on antiques and price ranges there numerous tips on valuing, dating and confirmation of provenance, with details of designers, consultants, specialists and auctioneers. Obviously this `Miller's Antiques Handbook & Price Guide 2014-2015' is not for reading from cover to cover but it is a marvellous reference book, and it is for the pleasure of dipping into. It is itself a `work of art' and it will take pride of place on any bookshelf - preferably a Georgian or Victorian sécretaire, bureau or breakfront bookcase.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Wisden of the antique world Miller's Antiques Handbook seems to have been around forever so I got a bit of shock when I found out that it has only been published since 1979. I have perused a few earlier copies but the 2014-2015 edition is street ahead of it's predecessors.

Fractionally smaller than A4 the book runs to 648 pages and is extremely heavy! It is split into 24 logical divisions each one covering a particular genre of the antique business such as ceramics, clocks etc. In each section examples of items are given with pictures, description and valuation.Essential reference is given highlighting what to look for and how to spot fakes along with a closer look which points out why particular pieces are more desirable.

Although largely compiled and edited by Judith Miller contributions are also given by many more famous valuers, many of them familiar faces thanks to programmes such as the Antiques Roadshow.

Not a book that you would pick up and read from cover to cover but one that can be dipped into or consulted when the need arises. Very enjoyable, very well put together and much recommended.

It's not really too much of a surprise that a handbook like this would be focussed on more expensive antiques, and that's mostly the case here. There are some more inexpensive pieces in each category, but the main focus is on the well known names and more rare pieces. This seems pretty sensible given that cheaper pieces may well be bought purely for visual appeal rather than long-term value (although if like me you're looking at furnishing a period property and seeing what pieces might be affordable with genuine antique pieces rather than modern alternatives it's not so useful). The pictures are excellent, and show each piece clearly. There isn't too much time spent on pieces, just a brief note about each generally, so it's more of use for identifying which style or origin a piece appears to be rather than being sufficient for being certain about whether a piece is genuine. Given that the book aims to cover everything from pottery to furniture to glassware and more. The author has a solid reputation, so their estimates should pretty reliable.
So, in all, it's a great coffee table piece, and very reasonably priced for the size and print quality, with a good range of items covered. It won't make you an expert, but it will help you to identify styles that you like or pieces that are within your price range to decide which pieces to look out for and what price range to expect. This being the main aim of the book it gets 4 stars from me.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As an auction house and jumble sale addict, I had always meant to get around to buying a copy of this, just to be sure I wasn't letting any little treasures slip through my fingers.

However, it turns out that this book isn't really for people like me. The vast majority of the pieces shown in the book are highly aspirational in nature. They are so obviously "worth something" that they won't turn up in bargain bins or even in small local auctions. Even allowing for that, I think many of the prices quoted in the book seem to be rather on the optimistically high side - comparing these prices with actual sales online suggests many are priced here well in excess of their actual worth.

I'm not very sure who the guide is aimed at. As mentioned earlier, it's not going to be very helpful for "accidental discoveries", and I would expect people who were dealing in big ticket items, such as those featured in the book, to already be in possession of most of the information provided. For my part, I would have been better served by Miller's Collectables (sic) Handbook, which seems to cover my area of interest a little better. This is no fault of this book, which is very nicely presented, on good heavy glossy paper, with clear text and pictures. A very good book, just not for me.

Glass's Guide for antiques?

Glass's Guide for antiques? I don't think so; the subject matter is just too far ranging for it to be possible to provide definitive valuations. Nevertheless, the guide does provide a useful reference point by touching on relevant examples in the categories provided.

Over the years the range of items covered has broadened considerably and the current format is well thought out to provide easy location of any particular item sought. Interestingly, as this volume arrived, I was in the middle of clearing out old books, among them several copies of Millers going back 20 years or so; comparing the Guide today to those earlier tomes you can see how significantly it has improved whilst still maintaining price parity.

Inevitably, given the infinite range of antiques, it is not possible for detailed descriptions to be provided however, `Judith's Picks' does do this in a limited way for selected items. Furthermore, section introductions usefully highlight the current state of the market and contained within each section, `Essential References' provide quick knowledge checks.

An invaluable tool for professionals and amateurs and a great thing to have at hand, to dig into during idle moments.
