16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Irvin Goodman HALL OF FAME on December 15, 2000
Format: Paperback
240 pages of nearly 1,000 large, sharp, clear, full color salt and pepper photographs. This is the 4th volume in the popular set, with prices updated for 1999. Not much text, but salt and pepper shaker collectors will be delighted with the pictures featured. Major topics range from Advertising, Animals, American Mades to Birds, Fish, Fowl and Condiment Sets to Holidays, Nodders, Places and Plastics. There is a very nice section on "Tomorrow's Collectibles." The book's best selling point is the quality of every photograph featured. Collectors who enjoy seeing beautiful photos of salt and peppers are sure to enjoy this volume.

This little book is a great tool for quick reference. The pictures are great and all in colors. Short comments. If you need more detailed info: try Melva Davern's books, also great pictures but a little more history.

This was one of the first books I bought on S&P collecting...I found it very informative & it educated me enough on different makers, materials, & styles to put me on the path of collecting S&Ps. The book helps the beginning collector & keeps the love of the search going for the advanced collector. It's still one of my favorites.

This book is for enthusiasts only, useless as a research guide for investment collectors or antique dealers.

The book does not give any information at all about manufacturer, production years, materials and methods of production, production volumes, or other information needed to describe an item and establish its vintage. The "identifications" are merely descriptions of what we can plainly see in the included photos of the author's collection. After reading it, I still have no idea what the included "values" are based on.
