Collecting Military Antiques
Collecting Military Antiques
Wilkinson, Frederick
In this book you will find clear answers to such questions as: how does one start a collection? Where are you likely to find military collectables? How does the collector determine the price he is willing to pay for a certain item? The author provides background material on the military objects, describes what is available from various countries, and discusses the purchasing, care and display of a collection. There are also chapters on naval collecting, police equipment, a selected reading list and a list of important museums and collections to visit. This book is illustrated with 16 pages of colour and more than 100 black-and-white photographs, many of which have not appeared in print before, and which cover items from all over Europe and America.
