Nearly 700 illustrations (many in colour) and over 1,500 entries present in one alphabetically arranged and carefully cross-referenced volume everything that the reader is likely to need in order to appreciate, attribute and date those specimens that come his way. Special terms, including widely-used foreign ones, are explained and there is a special section showing where American and British terminology differs. There is an extensive bibliography of books for further reading; these are arranged under subject, so that the reader can easily find sources of additional information on his speciality. An appendix of marks completes a work which must save its cost many times over for any collector or dealer.
