Nor is this book limited to the seasoned expert; I first read it as an utter novice and found it delightfully accessible (the plentiful color photos go a long way here.) The only caveat is that - as mentioned by another reviewer - the suggested prices seem very high; it might be a mistake for a neophyte to base purchasing decisions on the listings in this book.
Pass up that aero-filler 51 or that unrestored blurrily-photographed vac major, for the time being, and pick up a copy of this book instead. In the long run, it's a far better investment if you are truly interested in vintage fountain pens.
In addition, I thought the text and photo descriptions in the Parker section was superficial compared with what is available on the internet.

This book is the same edition published in the 1990's with updated prices. It was a disappointment to me because it included little or no new information or pen photos. Read morePublished on October 31, 2013 by Hadar Isseroff
