Very informative book, lots of different sorts of whimsies that I didn't know were available and their estimated value both in American Dollars and UK Pounds,also very informative on the history of wade and all the different marking you can find on different whimsies. Well worth the purchase for anybody who is interested in collecting whimsies.
This book has lots of information on the Wade figurines. The pictures of the figurines are accompanied with a description and some have the values listed. They can give a buyer some idea of what they could consider a reasonable price. I found it to be very interesting, and a good guide.
As a new collector, this book provided me with a LOT of info. Great pics, great pages. If you are into the new Wades tho, it's not a really recent book, you'll find little of the new stuff discussed.
