An excellent reference book on the subject of View-master collecting with up to date pricing and rarity indications.Much more in depth than the previously used "Waldsmith" book as a source of identification and checklist.Includes excelent photos and has the right balance of reference/information.I had a very small part to the compilation of the book in supplying Brad with information of European issues,but Brad has done himself proud in the final production in both content and presentation.

HASH(0x8fee8254) out of 5 stars Somewhat Disappointing 24 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This seemed like an awfully skinny little book for the asking price, but every review I had read about it was enthusiastic, so I purchased it in spite of my initial misgivings. When I got the book home and saw that the paper it was printed on was very good quality, and that there were color pictures, I was heartened a bit. Then, I actually tried to USE the book to find a value for a particular View-Master product. That was when I realized there was no alphabetical index, except for unnumbered reels. The user has to already know the number of the product in order to find it quickly, invest the time to read each and every line carefully, or hope he or she just happens to come across it while flipping through the pages. I'm sorry to be such a complainer, but when one spends the equivilent of several hours wages on a book, something as basic as an index is expected. I returned the book to the store I bought it from and got a refund.

HASH(0x90297ec4) out of 5 stars Another tool for viewmaster collection beginners 18 Sept. 2001
By D. Mckinzie - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
For those just beginning a viewmaster collection, this can be a handy tool. The only major fault I find with it is that it does not have an index in the back, making it more difficult to locate information about a specific item. But it is less costly than some of the viewmaster books and beginners often don't know the name or model number of a particular viewer or reel anyway, so it's not as big an issue as you might think. The photos are excellent and the authors are quite knowledgeable about viewmaster as a whole. It was worth the money.

HASH(0x90229e94) out of 5 stars Great book for all levels of collectors 11 Aug. 2001
By J. W. Owen - Published on Amazon.com
Being a 'newbie' to View-Master collecting this was one of the first books I picked up. It is very informative, well laid out and a terrific reference book. I've been able to classify my collection with ease. A must have!

HASH(0x90121540) out of 5 stars If you collect view-master you need this book. 6 July 2000
By linda - Published on Amazon.com
I've been collecting view-master items for years but I learned so much from this book. It clearly illustrates almost every detail of view-master collecting. I loved all the photos. Now I know what my collection is really worth. If you collect or are thinking of collecting viewmaster you need this book.

HASH(0x901f91d4) out of 5 stars wow....Great book for the price! 5 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
At 26.95 when most other view-master books out there cost alot more. It was well worth it. The paper quality and ALL the hundreds of photos both B&W and color are great. Plus the whole book is about view-master not just a little section in the back. If you remember these reels or want to collect them... this is the book for you. I have so many "collecting" books and they give little details and almost no photos. This one offers everything in great detail and pictures to go along with alot of items and updated values. You won't be dissappointed... I certainly wasn't. In fact.. I thought of getting a second one as I have used mine alot and it is quite dogeared. It gets used on a weekly basis and has become a great tool for my collecting habit. I have most of the viewmaster books available and this is the one I wouldn't be without!
