This is a great little book to help identify all the differences in your fruit jar collection. All the different embossings are drawn out for you to identify - like all the different Ball fruit jar embossings. It helped us beginning jar collectors! Also has prices for all the different jars.
This book is just what I needed on my many excursions to garage/estate sales. I have been able to determine better purchases for my collection by referencing my book on my outings. The images are in alphabetical order and are drawn precicely as they are seen on the jars. Info on jar colors for each embossed design is available too. A MUST HAVE for the avid jar collector!!
I bought this book thinking it would help me gain a lot of knowledge about the many jars I've accumulated, but it was not what I expected. There is very little information about jars, specifically, and the pricing doesn't seem to be up to date. I immediately ordered the "Red Book," which, even though it was a lot more expensive, was much more useful to me.This is a good little reference book if you just want to know where that symbol on the bottom of your jar came from. Also, I was surprised that this was such a small "book"-it really is a booklet (it is stapled in the middle) and should be advertised as such.
Great little book for identifying all those jars you buy at auctions for a buck a box. Alphabetized, clear images exactly as they appear on the jars, even comparative values for many choices per brand by color. It's not a coffee table book, it's a throw it in your bag and take to the sale book. Perfect!
I have used this book many times to identify the canning jars I have purchased or were given to me. I love to can foods and give as gifts. Until this book I didn't realize the value of the jars. Hubby & I canned peaches this past summer and were giving as Christmas gifts. I looked up the value of one jar and found it to be worth over $20.00! We gave away a jar of peaches with much lesser value, LOL!Small book with LOTS of great details. VERY EASY TO USE! Highly recommended if you are wanting to sell/purchase jars...or give away gifts in jars so you know the true value of the gift.
Even though this book was highly recommended on a bottle/jar collectors website, I was very disappointed in it. There was no history or dates on the little crude pictures. See my pictures. The book I got was revised in 1996 and had those values listed. I got more information on the Internet. Plus the inside cover says you can order it from the publisher for $6 plus $3 shipping. I feel royally screwed.
This book, One Thousand Fruit Jars, was just what I needed to sort out a horde of old fruit jars from my aunt's estate. Wonderful drawings and values. Helped me 100%.
This was exactly what I was looking for. I have begun to gather canning jars for my retirement and move to our farm. I plan to can a lot of my garden produce as well as fruits, jellies and juices. As I packed my jars in boxes, I noticed that they were not all the same and that some of the names I did not recognize. I love this book as it portrays all of the various enscriptions on the front of canning jars as well as gives approximate value. I have identified several that I have bought and have been surprised at where they have come from. This has made gathering my jars for the future more of an adventure.
