Knowing nothing at all about this period except that I very much like the things that I have seen, I bought this book as a guide to help me start my collection.
It has some wonderful photographs of incredible pieces, and realistic price listings to give the reader an idea of what they will have to pay should they wish to start a collection (I soon realised that I cant afford it!).
It is a nicely presented book, with very little writing however, lovely pictures with a little written about each one, but as a beginner I am not sure that it will be of much use to me other than as a price guide. A little more information about how to spot fakes and reproductions would have been helpful.
All in all it is an attractive book and a nice addition to my bookshelf.
