I needed to price and identify over 100 pounds of vintage buttons with very little background in the subject. This book taught me everything I need to know in a very short time. Excellent photos and examples. Highly recommended.

I bought this for my mother who started collecting buttons that she was finding at yard sales and flea markets. She absolutely loved the book. It is very complete in terms of providing information on all sorts of materials and subject matters. There are lots of examples, great pictures, so you can compare your buttons with the ones shown to get an idea ofthewir history/origins as well s some pricing info. Definitely the best book I've come across for buttons as I was looking for this gift for my mom and she's gotten great use of it. (Now I get to hear from her about "oh and this button..... and that button..." It's fun :)

For a beginner, who knows nothing of buttons, I'm impressed with the depth of knowledge in this book. It's a must for collectors, or for those wanting to learn more about buttons.

I have always been drawn to buttons, but didn't know very much about them. This book has very clear photos and descriptions. There are many "museum quality" buttons that are wonderful to see, but I was especially excited to see everyday buttons that I am more likely to find.

This was a great book for photos and history, price guide would have been extremly useful, learned a bit about buttons, yet having the prices laid out in front of me would have been a great benefit.

I was so excited to receive my book about buttons! It has a great deal of information on where the buttons came from
how they were made and when they were made. The book also has a pricing chart at the back of the book for nearly all the types of buttons. Overall I would recommend this book to people who are
beginners in collecting buttons just like me. I collect only glass buttons and there is alot of information on this type.
Have fun with collecting and make sure to read this book!

The pics are great in this book, but I guess I wasn't expecting it to be as old as it is. I consider the price guide to be completely outdated and useless. I am a new button collector and all this did was give me nice pics and a little info. Way overpaid for it.

Very pleased with this informational guide to buttons. Older book and price guide, but very useful for the button collector who is new to the trade
