I was looking forward to publication of this book. Here's way I am disappointed. 1. The photography. Most of the shiny pieces have white glare spots. Very distracting. 2. The bold captions such as 'Two vases' and 'Three vases' are obvious and not informative. 3. The organization. For example, the dinnerware section is arranged by pattern but 'Reamer', 'Pitcher' and many others are not patterns. 4. Errors. Chuck Wagon dinner plate is listed as Round Up. White & Turquoise casserole is listed as Spruce. (What else is wrong? How do we know?) 5. Prices. Granted this is not a science but the many of the prices seem to be half or less of what they are currently selling for in shops. I would not recommend this book for a beginning collector and am afraid an experienced collector will not find enough new information here to warrant purchasing it.Was this review helpful?
