Do you need help in finding that elusive and rare antique bottle? How about some clues on where to locate the best digging spots? Do you wonder how old your bottle really is? The "Bottle Bible", a comprehensive reference for all collectors from bottle-collecting enthusiast Michael Polak, is now newly revised for the third edition. Bottle collecting continues to grow as an incredibly popular hobby, with more and more people digging through old dumps, foraging through old ghost towns, digging out old outhouses, exploring mine shafts, and searching at swap meets, flea markets, and garage sales for the treasured bottle.
