Collector's Encyclopedia of Bookends, Identification & Values Reviews
I seem to have fallen into collecting bookends. Very good, informative book, with pricing guides. But this is for very vintage bookends. Would have liked to see 40's to 50's, but still worth price. It also gives info on some of the early manufacturers.
Lots of valuable info for the collector. This is the collectors bible, but keep your eye on current sale prices.
This is a great book for collectors of bookends and is worth the investment for those who own the previous edition. Although this edition is a big improvement over the last with more pictures, categories, descriptions, history and values than before, it does continue to neglect some areas to include the extensive hand carved alabaster examples that came out of Italy in the 20's and 30's. This volume is already 5 years out of date so the market could use a new revised edition!
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone considering collecting or even selling antique bookends. It has paid for itself many times over in the first week I've had it.
Great book. In the shape as noted. Would purchase from this dealer again.
excellent book for me as a beginner. great pics.
Best book on Bookends!!
It's illustrated and very well defined, so you won't have a problem locating whatever it is you're looking for.
