Smoking Antiques (Shire album)
Smoking Antiques (Shire album)
by Amoret Scott
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the few books on 'tobacciana', 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good source of general info for the beginner collector, although I'm still waiting for someone to bring out a definitive 'book'-sized reference on the subject, rather than slim booklets like this

4.0 out of 5 stars A big subject for such a small book!, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A totally impossible task, to cover in detail the entire, varied range of spoons, in a multiplicity of materials. Good effort, though, and well illustrated

Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.50

4.0 out of 5 stars A good place to start, if you're thinking of collecting vestas, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As always with books this slim, there is never quite enough information, but it's the only book I know exclusively about vestas, and good value for money

For such a slim book, it contains a lot of information - although it would have been nice if there had been even more!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great book, shame about this version!, 7 Jan. 2010
This review is from: 1066 and All That (Paperback)
As a school-kid way back when, I had very fond memories of this slim but amusing take on English history. However, this edition must have been printed from the original, worn old plates, as the text is blurry and a pain to read. It's like re-visiting a wonderful, much-loved old historic building, only to find that it has been allowed to fall into disrepair. Come on, Methuen, spend some money on getting it re-set, and clean up the line illustrations, or just give it to another publisher who might care a bit more than you!
