About this title

Synopsis:

This book chronicles the development of canes throughout the ages, defines their parts, the staggering variety of materials employed in their construction, and the dazzling array of gadgetry and weaponry hidden in many. Integral to the text are engaging stories of the author's experiences in hunting for the often elusive and rare sticks he has found over decades of collecting. He also provides advice that will give new collectors a much needed edge when entering the marketplace. Accompanying the text are over 1200 color photographs and illustrations. Invaluable information on the repair of damaged canes is also presented. An exhaustive index listing over 1580 cane patents from the United States, Britain, and Germany is provided as well as a very complete bibliography. Two illustrated auctioneer's catalogues and the prices received are included.

About the Author:

Frances H. Monek, an attorney from Lake Forest, Illinois, known to many simply as "The Cane Man," is known world-wide for his extensive cane collection and formidable knowledge of the field.
