Overview

When the first edition was published in 1970, this book quickly became the standard collector's reference guide. Now, as the number of marble collectors continues to grow, comes the long-awaited third edition, revised to include new historical facts, along with descriptions, photos and an expanded pricing section for hundreds of marbles in six different size categories.

This book educates readers about marbles, serves as a collector's resource, and is the only one to include tables of comparative rarity and a comparison of the subgroups of marbles for pricing. New information on reproductions and fakes will keep even inexperienced collectors from being swindled.

Marbles covered include agate and stone; clay, crockery and china; German swirls; swirls with colored glass, mica or goldstone; and individually made ones. Companies featured are M.F. Christensen, Akro Agate, Christensen Agate Company, and Peltier Glass.
