I wanted a book that would help me identify common antiques. It appears as though someone went into an antique shop and just described everything in the store. And left out everything in all the other stores! For example: one specific cigar cutter was identified - but that's all. Nothing about them in general.

The index in the back is not extremely helpful. It will say "Enamel" and give all the pages you can find it on - but not what objects - snuff bottle, figurine, etc. - you'll have to look up all the pages in hopes that you can find what you're looking for!

Another example: Hot-Wheels are not even listed at all.

Another example: Under "Furniture", it states "STAND, book, mahogany, tilt top, tripod pedistool base, c 1985, 43". If you don't have this exact book stand, then you won't have any idea of what yours is worth if it happens to be a different year, type, etc.

I wish the book had more common antiques and a larger variety.

This book attempts to tell a little about a huge volume of items, and gives very little of real use. The desired item in question may or may not be here, but if it is do not expect to learn much about it!

The book was just what my friend was looking for! Her house is filled with aniques and collectibles and now she'll know if they are truly valuable.

For over 30 years I've depended on Kovel's for a price guide. My last edition was 2003, and I"m delighted that it is as helpful as ever. I like the addition of a line of small color photos going down the side of each page. I'm beginning th evaluate some of my antiques in order to make it easier on my kids and grandkids. Kovel's will be a huge help in this.

shipping was quick...not a bad book, I just think it could have been a few more pictures of the items for the ones that are just starting to learn antiques.
