Collector Books, Jul 1, 1998 - Antiques & Collectibles - 608 pages
Antique dealers and collectors are quite aware that bargains are getting harder and harder to come by each and every day. Schroeder's Antiques Price Guide truly is a real bargain at $12.95. Collectors, dealers, and our customers continue to ask how can we produce this huge 608-page book each year for such a low price. It's simple -- we do it by numbers. It's no secret with publishing that the more you print, the less expensive each book is. So, thanks to all our loyal customers who continue to buy our #1 bestselling title, we are able to keep the retail price low without sacrificing one bit of quality. This is why you get the best for less. In August 1998 we will begin shipping the 17th edition of America's #1 bestselling antiques price guide. Once again we have included over 50,000 listings, each one from all-new sources and carefully checked by an authority on each particular subject. These 600+ expert advisors make sure only the best and most accurate remain for publication and give this popular title such respect in this great field of antiques and collectibles. No one person could possibly be an authority on the over 600 categories that fill this reference, but Bob and Sharon Huxford and their highly respected team work year-round to make this the best and most up-to-date guide. Over 600 categories are listed, along with hundreds of sharp original photographs that illustrate not only the rare and unusual, but also the common collectibles -- not postage-stamp photographs, but large, close-up shots that show important details clearly. Each subject is presented with histories and background information. Our editors keep abreast of newly developing trends, often adding several newcategories a year. If it merits the interest of today's collector, you'll find it in Schroe
