It's all about colour !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beswick Animals (A Charlton Standard Catalogue) (Perfect Paperback)
I possess the 9th Edition. I purchased this 10th Edition because I wished to read any new information plus see different coloured pieces in the colourplate pages sections(about 4 pages of beautiful coloured photographs with multiple pieces shown). I had noticed that the pieces shown in the colourplate sections change with each edition. How wrong I was. This edition replaces the previously black and white pieces with coloured photos, and (understandably) dispenses altogether with the colourplate pages. In the Horse section there's no new information. I feel some of the prices don't reflect the extreme rarity of some pieces such as the First Version Bois Roussel racehorse - which to my knowledge has never appeared on eBay, yet is stated to come in many colours, and in brown is only valued at $275.
A mixed blessing for collectors is that the 'book value' of many pieces has taken a tumble due to world economies. Great opportunity to 'stock up' if you can afford to. Disheartening when your current collection has practically halved in value...
Overall, wonderful improvement to show each piece in colour and worth buying!
