Review:

Just released in time for Christmas is Antique Santa Claus Collectibles, an identification and value guide by David Longest. Since tens of thousands of Santa Claus items have been produced from the 1890s to the present, the collector has no shortage of items from which to choose. Dating those items is not always easy, and the author offers a general time line to help solve this problem.
