This new edition, the first in 12 years, includes: Recent auction results. New chapter on Petersen and Dodge decoys. Easily tell one from the other. Hardbound with 176 pages and over 550 color photographs. This will be an instant favorite and a most valuable addition for all who collect or simply admire Mason decoys. The extensive, professional quality color photographs of the better available examples of the various species, styles and grades provide a definitive, visually enhanced, reference work. Russ and Alan have been dedicated Mason students and collectors for thirty years and have been dealers with a special interest in Masons for the last two decades. Their vast, nationwide network of contacts among collectors with similar interests has given them the best possible photographic access and knowledge of existing or surviving specimens. Alan's extensive professional travels have afforded him an unique opportunity to visit more collectors and collections than any one person I have met. This impeccable background and their academic approach allows the authors to speak with unequaled authority on the subject. In this book they share some newly uncovered information on multiple facets of the Mason story. New information fuels speculation, discussion and general interest and should further enhance the popularity and mystique of Masons - the undisputed royalty of factory-made bird decoys. Includes full color photographs of all the species and grades of decoys that the Mason factory produced during their 30 years of production.
