Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This classic book has been out of print for five years, and used copies have actually sold for $200 on the Internet. Now this volume is back in print in a greatly expanded, revised edition. All pages of the original edition have been retained and more than 800 perfume bottles are shown in color. The revised edition adds new essays by three leading perfume bottle authorities. Ken Leach describes America's fascination with perfume bottles and related items (c. 1910-1950), with special attention to the role played by Hollywood. Ruth Forsythe writes about recent reproductions of Czech perfume bottles. Madeleine France provides new historical perspectives and offers a hierarchy of perfume bottle categories to aid the collector.

Accompanying these essays are 62 new photographs in spectacular color. With the addition of this new material, the book has expanded from 128 to 164 pages. An up-to-date 1999 price guide concludes the work. This book provides essential information to collectors, and is a visual delight to all lovers of beauty.

Format: Paperback
I have found this to be a wonderful research book for my own collection of perfumes and for on line buying and selling perfumes. I have the 1999 Revised Price Guide and have discovered it has been most helpful for bidding on line and it keeps me price smart. The descriptions are precise and clear with measurements of the perfumes. Very important to me is the section written about Reproductions. I would like to see this section updated, as the problem gets progressively larger every year. This book is very informative about atomizers, manufacturers and trade names of perfumes, what marks to look for pertaining to each perfume, with a section (most important to me) on jeweled purse bottles. This book has literally broadened my horizons on perfume bottles and boudoir accessories.

Bought this a gift for a perfume bottle collector. She LOVED it! Talks about it all the time. Some of her friends have even asked me where I got it. Glad I bought it for her.
