Overview

The telephone you stashed away in your attic years ago is likely to be a magnificent treasure today! Enjoy this wonderful depiction of innovative telephones in over 500 color photographs tracing the development of the telephone from Bell's first experimental equipment. The book pictures exquisite examples of wooden box phones, vanities, upright "candlesticks," and desk stand or "cradle" phones, including some Canadian and European models.

This volume has become an important reference for the novice and avid telephone collector alike, with full descriptions of the numerous telephone companies and manufacturers and, in this 3rd edition, an updated value guide. This is the most expansive work ever compiled on collecting antique telephones, helping it become a growing and exciting hobby.
