Great for the beginner who wants to learn to appraise commonly found items.

I bought this for my wife for Christmas. She loves routing around at carboots and wanted top learn a bit more. She has read this book from cover to cover and made notes in the little book she carries around with her from it.
It is by no means comprehensive but covers the most likely items, marks and condition reports you are likely to find. There are many illustrations and instructions on how to read and find makers marks etc.
This is a great book for beginners or the curious person who wants to find out the basics. For experienced antique hunters you probably know most of the content by now so it won't be much use to you.
