A useful book because it covers both doorstops *and* doorknockers, bookends, banks and other cast iron ephemera. The photographs are dark and the pricing is out of date, but there are very few books on cast iron collectibles, making this a valuable addition.

It took the company a week before they mailed this book to me (so it took 2 weeks to get it), that made me mad. I finally get it and within one evening of looking through it, it literally fell apart at the seams. I contacted amazon through email and it was very easy to order another one for free and keep the broken one till I got the new one in the mail, so I did that. When the new book arrived I printed out the free label and sent the broken book back to amazon. Within one evening again the second book fell apart. I could have got a refund but decided to try to fix the book because I liked it. I hot glued the binding and it has been fine since.
The book itself has a variety of doorstops, bookends, bottle openers, still banks, string holders and tiny paper weights. Some of the items are different than "the doorstop book" and some are a repeat.
This book has a weird "find the value" code in the back of the book that was a total pain flipping back and forth (they should have made the binding better just for people having to flip constantly back and forth so much to match up each picture with the code in the back of the book). Anyhow, I spent 2 whole evenings just looking up the values in the back of the book and writing them on the photos themselves so for future reference it will be much much easier for me and I will not have to take as many aspirins!
If you can get through all this the book was good.
