The Essential Guide To Collectibles- A Source Book of Public Collections in Europe and the USA. The passion for collecting is well documented, with no object seemingly too humble to be overlooked, from the modest postcard to the milk bottle. Today, this passion- which often verges on the obsessive -is fuelled by the sale of objects on-line and by popular television programmmes such as The Antiques Road Show.
With this guide, collectors can find public collections in both Europe and the U.S.A relating to their particular obsessions. The book is organised by category and covers a hugh range of collectibles, from teddy bears, clocks, coins, corkscrews, guns and rugs to the more unusual, such as barbed wire and erotic art.
