There are several things that make this book a stand-out. The first is the basic information about the types of marbles (antique, machine-made, modern) and the makers of the marbles. If you're looking for extensive historical information, this may not be the book for you. But if you collect marbles and are interested in good, basic information as well as tons of photos (most enlarged so you can see every detail) of a wide variety of marbles, this book fills the bill. While I'm no marble expert, I learned a grat deal from reading this one!

Great for getting in to the history of marbles and identifying certain marbles but very little info on value. Great pictures and examples of marbles but if youre looking for a price guide this isnt it.

There are some very minor inaccuracies, nothing major but overall this is beautiful, true, coffee table book. The reason that I know about it is that my neighbor is one of the featured artists in the book (Jeffrey Grey). It's quite an amazing book and if you find the last pic in the book that is attributed to Jeffrey, what you're seeing there are hand made marbles made of fiberglass and wood that he made himself. I couldn't believe it when I first looked at them but he gave me one of the marbles shown in the picture and I have to say it's an absolutely amazing bit of craftsmanship. For an offbeat conversation starter, this is really a fun, whimsical book.

I haven't seen this book myself (yet). I ordered it for a marble lover, who called to tell me that the photos are fantastic.
