From Library Journal:

Browsing through this book is like wandering through a cluttered antique shop, for it covers an amazing variety of subjects. Written by experts in the field, such as art historians or curators from major auction houses, the individual chapters cover everything from armor to art pottery. Throughout, the text tends to be well written, with brief bibliographies included in each chapter. Foreign and esoteric terms are clearly defined, and a glossary is also provided. Whenever necessary, time charts and diagrams illustrate the evolution of an object (for instance, line drawings describe the changing styles of Teddy bears from the 19th century to the present). Excellent as a ready reference tool, this book is suitable for both public and art libraries.
