Comments: The Antique Price Guide I look in first to research anything
I have hundreds of price guides on specific subjects, but this is my favorite book for researching general items. They also feature items I can't find in other price guides. They give enough background about the company or item that I get a better understanding of what I'm trying to price. If I only buy one new general price guide a year this is the one I buy. I've been a part-time antique dealer and collector for 25 years. I feel any price guide I buy is worth the price if it helps me with one item I am researching and trying to find the value of. This one pays for itself many times over each year. Be sure to keep all your back issues because sometimes they cover something in depth one year and after a year or two drop it in favor of a new emerging collectible.

Comments: This book is not for amatuer collectors - very vague
While the number of items listed in this book is extensive, the information is not. This book is not for the inexperienced collector. Very limited information on identification of pieces, very few pictures, and not user friendly. If you do not know the exact nature(manufacturer, year, etc) of the piece you are trying to look up - you are out of luck.

Comments: Schroeder's Antiques Price Guide
I am a personal property appraiser and I buy an updated version of this book every year. Why? There are approximately 450 people on the advisory board and a list of contributors in the back (with addresses and telephone numbers). I have found the information contained reliable. These people are experts in their respective fields who lecture and write on their subject. I have found them to be very helpful. I only call on them in unusual situations. While this information is not detailed enough to actually use for appraisals, it usually gets me headed in the right direction.

Comments: Excellent reference guide
We have used Schroeder's Antique Price guide for many years. We always look forward to the newest issue as we use it on a very frequent basis. It is written in concise and clear terms, well documented with many reference sites also listed in clear, easy directories. Amazon offered this guide at the best value we could locate online or offline. Thank you Amazon.

Thank you,

Good book but a lot left out, Mostly rare or hard to find items are covered and from not all makers. Still a good book for the more advanced collector.

Comments: Difficult to Find Your Item
While the book is huge and covers a vast number of items, I have yet to find an item in it that I need to identify/value. It's a good resource for a general feel of how to price items/what items should cost. I tend to rely on more specialized/collector's books instead of this one. In fact, I don't believe that I have opened this book in a year.
