Spanning Roman antiquities to "collectables of the future", this illustrated guide features all the latest price ranges and represents a cross-section of what has been available in auction houses and from dealers across the world, including the USA. The 2003/4 edition includes features on: amusement and slot machines; Victorian "love" jewellery; erotica; Masonic regalia; crime novels; toys and games; collectable road maps; ocean liner memorabilia and postcards. More familiar subjects such as: advertising and packaging; ceramics; glass and metalware are also present. In this edition, individual sections have been devoted to garden collectables and kitchenware. Every item shown appears within a price range, be it thousands of pounds or less than five pounds and the "Record Breakers" pages celebrate the objects that have made the highest recorded prices in their field. The guide also features a wealth of background information, as well as collecting tips and advice about where to buy and what to look out for.Directories of specialist dealers, markets and centres and collector's clubs are also featured in the text, in addition to advertisements from leading auctioneers and specialists who can help put the collector in touch with people who can assist.
