Everybody knows that among toy collecting the world of automotive toys is one of the most popular. This book provides a delightful history of the toy car from the 1890s to today that will benefit all types of toy car collectors. In addition to the wonderful history and many color illustrations is a "Collector's Information" section that provides a glossary of terms, some top prices realized and important addresses for toy museums, auction houses that conduct toy sales and leading dealers and collectors of automotive toys. This book is a wonderful choice for toy car enthusiasts.
What child hasn't had a toy car? It's a natural part of growing up, a way to mimic adulthood and make some really fun revving sounds as well. If you saved those toys, it can also be a lucrative hobby.
Consider Wheels: Christie's World of Automotive Toys an ode to such playthings. Beautifully designed in the Chronicle tradition, and illustrated with specimens drawn from the collection of Christie's auction house, this book depicts many of your childhood playthings and some really sweet little toys you probably never had. Veteran toy collectors Mike and Sue Richardson lead the tour.
