In addition to the discussion of period and style and the numerous illustrations found in most books on period furniture, this book covers other topics that are equally important to the collector: understanding the furniture trade, evaluating quality, investment potential, identifying period workmanship, the ins and outs of dealers, shows, and auctions, care and conservation, repair and restoration, documentation, insurance, problems of inheritance, and coping with the misrepresentation so often encountered in the market. The 400 black and white illustrations are finely detailed line drawings made from authentic pieces of furniture featured in the catalogs of some of the leading auction houses. No prices. REVIEW: This book is a thorough and complete single-volume encyclopedia featuring every department store special, every Barbie doll exclusive, and every Collector Series Barbie doll and fashion released since 1972. This edition includes over 75 dolls not seen in the previous edition and now features the enormously popular Silkstone Barbie Fashion Model Collection. [via]
