Meet the Author

Born and raised in a small town in central Illinois, Jonathon Jones has spent most of his life involved in academic pursuits. He attended the University of Illinois where he studied Art History, and later received a Bachelor's degree in Art History at the University of South Florida. In addition, he also received a Master's degree in Library Science at that same University. He is also a member of the Society for Collegiate Scholars as well as the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society.
Some of his many research projects have involved nutrition, philosophy, art, antiques, history, human relations, and sexuality. His personal interests are movies, trivia games, visiting historic sites, and museums.
For 25 years of his life he has been an avid researcher and collector of antiques and collectibles, and since 1997 has been a seller as well, primarily via online auction sites such as Ebay. He has also collaborated with and sent textual and visual submissions to Ted Hake, writer of the Hake's Character Collectibles Guides, and some of his former collection pieces have been pictured within the pages of those books.
His most recent dream is to write informative manuals as well as short stories via the E-book format, and with the love and support of his family and friends, he hopes this dream will become a reality. He currently resides in Florida near his family, whom he would like to thank wholeheartedly for giving him the hope and inspiration that he needs to make all of his dreams come true.

    I liked his Ebay antiques and collectibles book so much I decid

    I liked his Ebay antiques and collectibles book so much I decided to buy this one for my kids since they grew up in the seventies. They were amazed at how one book covered an entire decade worth of toys, had tons of lists for each toy, great pictures, and that it covered boy AND girl toys. I admit that I have seen a lot of books in my day, but I have never seen a toy book that covered boy and girl toys both. This book should be ten bucks, not two. These things take a while to get through, not three minutes like an mp3. I can see why those are cheap, but these ebooks really should be more.
    My kids said theyll be on the lookout for Volume 2 when it is released. This guy has a lot of knowledge and a lot of his remarks are hysterical from time to time from what my kids tell me. So just buy it. Im sure you'll like it.
