"Find the best antique and vintage collector books and price guides on antiques and collectibles that appraisers and dealers use plus expert collecting book reviews at Collectics Antique Collector Bookstore." World Antiques Weekly

Originally published in 1998, the magnitude of the Field Guide to Carnival Glass is phenomenal. So much is packed into its 374 pages: hundreds of photos (both color and black & white), a database of actual sale prices for 37,000 items, descriptions and complete information on all the classic patterns, and a 32 page color section showing all Carnival colors including even the rare finds. Author David Doty ensures that any reader finishes the book an expert with his specialized chapters on such topics as How Carnival Glass Was Made, Sorting Out Peacock and Urn Patterns, Lettered Pieces, Vases, Novelties & Minatures, Decorated Carnival, Lamps & Shades, Hatpins, and Contemporary Carnival. Sound like a hard-to-read textbook? It's not. Billed by collectors as a "gold mine of a book," its user friendly format impresses all readers. Patterns are conveniently listed from A-Z, and the book contains an index to color section as well as a "pattern by shape" index for easy reference. Entries include a listing of known shapes and colors in each pattern, along with a price range and rarity guide for each particular item. Values are carefully averaged to eliminate unusually high or low selling prices.
