If you enjoy collecting oil lamps, this book is a must. Gives a good history and general facts about oil lamps. The many pictures will give you a good reference point to help pinpoint what manufacturer made your lamp, approximately when, and what the particular design of the lamp was called. Out of my collection of 10 lamps, I have been able to identify 8 of them in this book. There were many producers of oil lamps with little documentation available. So, to be able to acquire good information on a particular lamp makes the lamp and your collection more exciting. This author did an excellent job and that is why this book is the benchmark in the oil lamp collecting world. A good investment.
