Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In Britain (as in other parts of the world) commemorative items are issued to honor important historical events-elections, royal visits, jubilees, sporting events, battles, deaths of monarchs, royal weddings, and subsequent births of heirs. Their forms are as varied as their subject matter, and except for stamps and coins, most of the variations are depicted in this book. Included are not only collector's plates and other ceramic pieces but also biscuit and tea tins, chocolate boxes, paper ephemera, silver pieces, articles of clothing, and even beer bottles. According to the author, this guide is unique because it documents-through numerous photographs and informative text-a broad range of memorabilia and covers 14 reigns from the 17th-century Stuarts to the present (who can resist the Margaret Thatcher toby jug?). Yet while the coverage seems comprehensive, the index is inadequate and no price guide is included. (For prices, readers might want to check Audrey B. Zeder's British Royal Commemoratives, Wallace Homestead, 1986. o.p.) Nonetheless, this book would be a valuable addition to most decorative arts collections.-Margarete Gross, Chicago P.L.
Brad Hooper
Not one of the hottest collectibles, British memorabilia nonetheless affords Anglophiles great fun as they seek out tea tins, plates, cups with saucers, special issues of magazines, and other articles commemorating national events and individuals, including royal births, deaths, marriages, and coronations, as well as achievements of sports figures and war heroes. Hallinan, former lord mayor of Cardiff, Wales, and former chair of the Commemorative Collectors' Society, provides a lavishly illustrated, complete history of British commemoratives back to the seventeenth-century reign of Charles II. Through this excellently informative text, he narrates a general course in British history, particularly monarchical, into which he has woven discussions of extant memorabilia. Essential reading for collectors of such items.
