Portmeirion


Category: Collecting
Description: Portmeirion pottery evolved from a souvenir shop in North Wales into a twenty-first-century global business, thanks to the flair and vision of Susan Williams- Ellis. She captured the aspirations of households all over the world, transforming their kitchens and dining rooms from the 1960s onwards by cleverly blending the contemporary and the traditional. Her ' Botanic Garden' pattern, introduced in 1972, combined antique flower prints with contemporary shapes, and having been in production for the last forty years, it is the firm's most successful creation. The company is currently moving forwards with a new generation of designers; it has a foothold in over fifty countries and has even acquired the Spode and Royal Worcester design portfolios. Will Farmer and Rob Higgins here tell the story of Portmeirion and illustrate dozens of Williams- Ellis's collectable design classics.

Roman Base Metal Coins


Category: Collecting
Description: This price guide is a book for the collector rather than the scholar and, as such, has to be pocket-sized and inexpensive. It assumes that the reader will be more interested in assigning a coin to its proper period or Emperor than in working out the meaning of the design on the reverse and, therefore, whilst most of the usual obverse portraits and legends are illustrated, the reverses are dealt with in a much more cursory manner. As an aid to identification, all illustrations are as close to life-sized as possible. Remember, that often Roman coins are not completely circular like modern coins. Further, not all Roman base-metal coins are included. This is a selection of the available material, including the vast majority of the coins the collector is likely to encounter in 'real life'.

Matchbox Toys


Category: Collecting
Description: Matchbox toys were ubiquitous items for children across the Western world. Originally labelled Christmas-cracker trash by retailers and shopkeepers, the small-scale 1-75 series soon began to see unprecedented worldwide sales in the 1950s. Smaller and cheaper than most of its competitors' toys, Matchbox models were also far more accurately modelled, but the company has nevertheless seen its own share of competition and challenging times over the years. In this beautifully illustrated book, Matchbox collector Nick Jones tells the story of Matchbox and its most famous toys, from the Coronation Coach to Hotwheels dragsters, and complements the story with beautiful, previously unpublished photographs.

The 1950s Kitchen


Category: Collecting
Description: The 1950s was the first great age of the modern kitchen. Labour-saving appliances, bright colours and the novelty of fitted units moved the kitchen from dankness into light, where it became the domain of the happy housewife and the heart of the home. New space-age material Formica, decorated with fashionable patterns, topped sleek cupboards that contained new classic wares such as Pyrex and ' Homemaker' crockery, and the ingredients for 1950s staples: semolina, coronation chicken and spotted dick. Electricity entered the kitchens of millions, and nowhere in the home was modern technology and modern design more evident. Bold colour, clean lines and stainless steel were keynotes of the decade. This book - a celebration of cooking, eating and living in the 1950s kitchen - is a feast of nostalgia, and a mine of inspiration for anyone wanting to recreate that '50s look in their own home.

Description: This is the b/w paperback version of The Standard Guide to Grading British Coins - the ' Where's wear' of British numismatics! The first book of its kind. A detailed photographic and descriptive record of the grades of all British modern milled pre-decimal coins (1797 to 1970). The grade of a coin dictates it's value. The age, type or specific date are all of less importance than the condition. But what is Fine, VF, EF or Uncirculated? If you are new to coin collecting or specialise in different coin types, how can you say without doubt that a coin is a certain grade? Until now you could only guess. Now, at least you can make a very educated guess based on the images shown in The Standard Guide to Grading British Coins. The photos of every obverse and reverse type are illustrated at 2x or greater magnification and the text describes where to look for the wear first. An invaluable guide to anyone who collects coins, especially at the moment, with huge amounts of overgraded coins being offered on the internet.

Do Not Sell At Any Price


Category: Collecting
Description: Before MP3s, CDs, and cassette tapes, even before LPs or 45s, the world listened to music on fragile, 10-inch shellac discs that spun at 78 revolutions per minute. While vinyl has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years, rare and noteworthy 78rpm records are exponentially harder to come by. The most sought-after sides now command tens of thousands of dollars, when they're found at all. Do Not Sell at Any Price is the untold story of a fixated coterie of record collectors working to ensure those songs aren't lost forever. Music critic and author Amanda Petrusich considers the particular world of the 78-from its heyday to its near extinction-and examines how a cabal of competitive, quirky individuals have been frantically lining their shelves with some of the rarest records in the world. Besides the mania of collecting, Petrusich also explores the history of the lost backwoods blues artists from the 1920s and 30s whose work has barely survived and introduces the oddball fraternity of men-including Joe Bussard, Chris King, John Tefteller, and others-who are helping to save and digitize the blues, country, jazz, and gospel records that ultimately gave seed to the rock, pop, and hip-hop we hear today. From Thomas Edison to Jack White, Do Not Sell at Any Price is an untold, intriguing story of the evolution of the recording formats that have changed the ways we listen to (and create) music. Whether you're already a 78 aficionado, a casual record collector, a crate-digger, or just someone...who enjoys listening to music, you're going to love this book ( Slate).

The Cavalry Lance

The Cavalry Lance


Category: Collecting
Description: The development of cavalry firearms and the widespread disappearance of armour from the European battlefield saw a decline in the use of the cavalry lance in early modern warfare. However, by 1800 the lance, much changed from its medieval predecessors in both form and function, was back. During the next century the use of the lance spread to the armed forces of almost every Western country, seeing action in every major conflict from the Napoleonic Wars to World War I including the Crimean and Franco- Prussian wars and across the Atlantic in the American Civil War. The lance even reached the colonial conflicts of the Anglo- Sikh and Boer wars. It was not until the disappearance of the mounted warrior from the battlefield that the lance was consigned to history. Featuring specially commissioned artwork and drawing upon a variety of sources, this is the engaging story of the cavalry lance at war during the 19th and 20th centuries, from Waterloo to the Somme.

Throughout the First and Second World Wars, as well as the Korean War, cotton-based load-carrying equipments served the infantryman with little change in their design and construction. In 1954 a new load-carrying system was developed to meet the needs of the infantryman on the perceived battlefields of the Cold War. At the onset of the Vietnam War it was clear that this new cotton-based webbing system was not acceptable for use in the humid environment of the jungles of Southeast Asia.

Armour Never Wearies Scale And Lamellar Armour In The West From The Bronze Age To The 19th Century


Category: Collecting
Description: This is the first volume to bring together all the hitherto scattered evidence - archaeological, literary and artistic - for the forms and uses of scale and lamellar armours in the region west of the Urals throughout the two thousand years during which these armours were used. The interpretation of this meticulous collection of data is informed by the author's decades-long practical experience as a maker of arms and armour, martial artist and horseman. ( Lamellar armour differs from the earlier scale armour in not needing a backing for the individual pieces of leather, iron or bronze.) It offers systematic definitions and analysis of these often misunderstood forms of armour, along with detailed diagrams and instructions that will be of great use to any who wish to turn their hands to reconstruction. Along the way, this unique synthesis of evidence and interpretation debunks myths that have arisen in recent years.
