The Art of the Toy Soldier

£9.99

Product description

Probably no other area of toy collecting has expanded with quite the rapidity as that of toy soldier collecting in all its forms. For most collectors of any subject, variety is one of the main allures, particularly when that variety can be substantiated with catalogue references and known manufacturers. Thus this superb history of commercially produced toy soldiers throughout the world encompasses all the above criteria. Chapter headings include - The German Makers: The March of the Tin Soldiers, The French Makers: A Soldier Line of Troops. The British Makers: The Rise of the Britains Empire. The American Makers: The Dimestore Doughboys. Other Makers: Soldiers of the World. The superb photography depicts some of the greatest collections in the world, in particular that of Burtt Ehrlich, the renowned New York collector, who has collaborated with Henry Kurtz to produce a text which is both extremely informative and eminently readable.

Red boards with gilt lettering to the spine.Book in very good condition with clean pages throughout and securely bound. Printed in 1987.First edition.Heavy book at 2.64 kg, so will attract courier delivery charge of £8.00.
