The newest addition to the "Lionel Postwar Encyclopedia" series, this substantial, single-volume reference-the subject's only definitive guide-details more than 700 1960s-era promotional model sets. Author Schmid's (Authoritative Guide to Lionel's Postwar Operating Cars) 680-page "Outfit" segment, organized by series number, is replete with color photographs of original packaging, advertisements, and factory orders; his 71-page "Reference" segment discusses, among other concerns, outfit pricing, rarity, and condition. Editor Carp's (The Art of Lionel Trains) meticulous historical account is both highly informative and engaging. Although geared toward the die-hard Lionel enthusiast, this will prove a valuable addition to Americana, vintage toy, and public access library collections.
