    Great Book for Ice Skate Collectors

    This is a long overdue book on antique ice skates. The book is beautifully done, informative and the prices are realistic. I recommend this to anyone who collects antique skates, or loves the history of skates. A 'must' for collectors. If you are a collector, make sure you have a ruler when you read this book. You will want to go around measuring the sizes of your own skates as I did. I loved the book.
