About this title

Synopsis:

Since the turn of the century, the automobile has captured the imaginations not only of adults, but of children as well. As quickly as the new vehicles rolled off the assembly lines, foundries were making thousands of cast iron miniatures of the most popular automobiles, trucks, and farm equipment of the day. Today, rare and exquisite cast iron toys are coveted by collectors of all ages. This book presents a delightful, in-depth study of the marvelous products of leading American cast iron toy manufacturers, including Kenton, Dent, Hubley, Arcade, Kilgore, Vindex, and A. C. Williams, along with select pieces by Champion, Globe, Grey Iron, Freidag, North and Judd, and Niederst. This spectacular collection includes the best in toys, original catalog advertisements, signage, manufacturers' marks, and much more. Over 850 magnificent toys are displayed, including automobiles, trucks, motorcycles, tractors, farm and construction equipment, and aeronautics, each with detailed photographs, exacting captions, price guide, and historical data on the manufacturing companies. Toy collectors, cast iron aficionados, and dealers will welcome this most complete book.
