Collecting Toy Soldiers in the 21st Century is a collectors’ guide written by James Opie.
This book serves as an update of the author’s successful book: Collecting Toy Soldiers (Collins, 1987; pbk edition, New Cavendish, 1991). In it, James Opie gives the collector the benefit of thirty years’ experience as the world’s leading authority on traditional toy soldiers (as opposed to model soldiers used in wargaming etc.) and a lifetime as a collector himself. The book combines authoritative advice on all aspects of collecting, including price trends and pitfalls to avoid when buying or selling at auction. This guide helps the toy soldier enthusiast address major concerns when collecting like getting started, identifying toy soldiers, judging the condition of toy soldiers, and caring for figures. It even includes informative and often-amusing anecdotes from James’ own experiences.
Collecting Toy Soldiers in the 21st Century is 256 pages with approximately 220 color photographs.
