While there are plenty of books out there on art glass, banks, and art pottery; this is the first one I ever found that had barbed-wire (much more varied and interesting than you would think) and arrowheads. I enjoyed learning something about these and about collectible baskets. This is not an exhaustive study of all the items listed in the description (160 pages wouldn't be enough) and the values for items are dated (published 1978), but overall, the guidelines on what makes these collectibles valuable and what items a collector may want to concentrate on for their collection, makes the book a worthwhile read and a worthwhile reference for the novice collector in one of the specialties or someone looking for a unique and out of the ordinary area of collecting.
It has certainly whetted my appetite for the other books in the collection, as well.
