The problem with a publication like this is that by the time it hits the streets, the prices are already out of date and, as this 10th Edition was first published in December 2008 (although the copyright date is 2009), changes in fashion and the continuing growth of online purchasing means that, whereas some pieces have increased in value, many are now available for much less than quoted in the book - for a more up-to-date guide to how much they are selling for, check out the "completed" listings on ebay (this shows the actual price that was paid for something), go to the websites of more traditional auction houses or browse round your local antique shops.
BUT...don't let this put you off. I didn't buy this book to look at the prices; I bought it because I wanted a comprehensive and detailed listing of the collectables I'm interested in, so I can first choose the figures I want and second research the current market.
This extraordinary little gem gives me exactly what I need.
Do take the price guide with a pinch of salt. Charlton do have an unenviable task in collating information from many different sources - auctions, internet, dealers etc. and take an informed view as to what the current market value of any particular piece is. However, that is not to say this is the 'right' price and you will find that a bit of patience and a lot of searching around will mean you can normally buy much more keenly. Start by checking out what is on Ebay!

These reviews can by a bit hyped, but this book does what it says on the cover. Not as many variations in prices listed as first thought, but still worth the money.Published on 12 Mar. 2013 by welshwoody
