This book gives sufficient information to enable such a collector the better to understand these highly sought-after figurines and gain rather more insight into their respective backgrounds. That so many different little Gollies have been produced is rather an eye-opener. This book probably doesn't cover them all and it was published in 2003 since when a plethora of Carlton Ware Gollies have seen the light of day.
But, if you are looking for a starting point and interested in collecting them, then this book fits the bill. It is, because of the 7 year lapse, not up to date with valuations but, with a little extra research, it's not difficult to bring yourself up to speed, certainly on Carlton Ware which is still producing them, alongside other attractive pieces such as Snowmen and some Mabel Lucy Attwell figurines.
All-in-all then, a good starter. If an update is likely to appear, this would, indeed, be more than very helpful.
Thoroughly recommended and great pictures of rare and hard to find Golly items.
