"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

Bookends have evolved into a well-established genre of interest amongst collectors, antiques dealers, and aficionados of the decorative arts. Since the publication of the Collector's Guide to Bookends by Louis Kuritzky and Charles De Costa, first published by Collector Books in 1998, knowledge about bookend sculptors, founders, and subject matter has continued to grow. This single volume is by far the most detailed and authoritative text published on the topic to date. Most sets of bookends serve simply to keep bookshelves tidy and add decorative complement. A set of bookends might be chosen to balance a particular display of books, those with collectible or very personal value. Many book lovers are also lovers of bookends and might become collectors of both. Finally, with all of the styles available today, bookends might be chosen simply because they reflect a certain theme - nautical, sports, cowboys, circus, etc - or because the bookends complement a decorative style like Art Deco, rustic, modern, or romantic. It's easy to fall in love with a set of bookends before books even come to mind. Containing more than 2500 photographs and entries, numerous examples of never before published bookends are provided with updated information about rarity, value, sculptors, and founders. The full range of collectible bookends is represented including metalware, porcelain, glass, and works of assorted major pottery and glass makers. You'll love the many photographs of styles from Tiffany, Lalique, Frankart, Rookwood, Weller, McCoy, Roseville, and more. This volume will surely be the definitive standard reference for antique and collectible bookends.
