A collectors guide. John G Garratt. Probably the first book published in English and in many ways still one of the best on the subject, covers the history of toy and model soldier manufacture, making and displaying figures, and wargaming. This book started many of us off as serious collectors and remains a good grounding for anyone just starting out in the hobby. I have the second edition printed in 1965 by Seeley Service & Co. it is long out of print but regularly turns up on dealers stalls.
