4.5 out of 5 stars

Superb large coffee table book that is constantly useful for the smaller details of these venerable toys. The diagrams in the back are not quite my cup of tea but the pictures alone are worth the price of this book. I run a small vintage toy shop in Leicester and my customers regularly ask to have a quick look at 'the bible'!
In short a superb book with great photos.

The second-hand book itself was in fine condition, almost mint. However I do not think that with the hefty price increase from new, it offers that much more than Mike and Sue Richardson`s original book on Dinky Toys, apart from the original factory drawings. Indeed some of the colour illustrations are not as well reproduced second time around, looking decidedly `murky` with the detail hidden.

This book is a treasure trove both in terms of content and quality. It is thoroughly researched and the abundant colour pictures and drawings will bring those childhood memories flooding back. This is an appealing book to both enthusiasts and those who just want to recapture the excitement Dinky Toys brought to their younger days. It can be read in detail or left on the coffee table for browsing. Overall, an excellent package that really does deliver. Recommended.

A crucial complement to their previous masterpiece also from New Cavendish Books. excellent coverage of a vast range of information. I only wish more dimensional data was included. An essential reference.
