Mike Schneider keeps raising the bar a little higher--so high that Sergei Bubka couldn't vault over it. When I got the book I showed it to friends and that was the acid test. Over and over I heard, 'My grandma had that pair,' or ' We have those in the basement...they're worth that much?!?' These people were enthralled with the book. Mike Schneider's book runs from routine shakers to really obscure ones to ones that are absolutely unbelievable. The prices are true and the colors are crisp. Mr. Schneider's previous work caused me to be sure I got this volume--and as always I am very pleased with his efforts. Schiffer Publishing has a rising star.
If you are going to own just one book on salt & peppers, this is the one in which to invest. It is quite comprehensive and very well organized.
This book is what I would term user friendly. It is set up in such a way that you can easily access the information you need. In the back of the book is a listing of many importing companies and information on them. This is my favorite of all of the shaker books.
Probably the best reference book to date on collecting shakers. Chock full of pictures and information cover to cover.
This is a very good book. It's is very helpful to my husband and myself, we have a large collection of salt and pepper shakers. We like the way it is laid out with one drawback. The price list is all in the back of the book, a little bit of a pain to look up, and maybe if the pictures were numbered it would be easier to find the price of whatever shaker set your looking for. Overall a very informative book.
This book is good and I am happy that I purchased it. It is not as complete as I would have liked; but then again, if it were, it may have been delivered by a semi. Worth the price for sure. I'll use it often.
Schneidly Whiplash has done it again! He and his wife have such a wonderful talent for showcasing the values of collectibles!!!!
The book was described in good condition. I don't call a book that has writing in it plus the cover all torn up as in good condition. When I have bought other books online that state good condition they have been in good condition. I'm not disputing the information in the book which is very useful just the unsatifactory condition.Disappointed in the East.
