When it comes to high-quality ‘Bibles’ ranging from price guides to strong visuals packed with small color photos, you just can’t beat Collector Books for its extensive and ongoing reference publications. New additions highly recommended include John and Malinda Bomm’s Official Precious Moments Collector’s Guide To Figuerines (1574323970, $16.95), to be highly applauded for its strong six-photos-to-a-page organization and its easily-understood chapter references to all kinds of figurines from Precious Moments, Linda Crowsey’s fine Madame Alexnader (157432392X, $14.95), providing the updated 2004 price guide with some visuals but strong updated value listings, and Volume II of Cindy Sabulis’ Collector’s Guide To Dolls Of The 1960s And 1970s (1574323830, $24.95), powerful in its color photos and values listings lending to identification and pricing alike. Don’t miss Margaret and Kenn Whitmyer’s Fenton Art Glass Patterns (1574323849, $29.95), appearing in its updated second edition to include a range of large and small color photos helping identify pieces and values, or Gene & Cathy Florence’s Glass Kitchen Shakers (157432389X, $19.95), an identification and price guide to 1930s and 1950s shakers of all styles. Dovetailing readily with household collectibles is Michael Ivankovich’s Wallace Nutting Furniture (1574324012, $19.95), packing in plenty of background furniture history along with its color photos and price coverage, and Dana Johnson’s Matchbox Toys, 4th Edition (1574323938, $24.95), so filled with description, photos and prices that you’ll want to keep it in the car for quick reference during any garage sale expedition. All are excellent and solid references.
