A guide to the world's best-selling antiques. The major areas of collecting are given thorough coverage and the volume features items that are sold in all areas of the trade - antiques shops, auction houses, markets and fairs. To celebrate this 21st edition, a team of expert consultants who worked on the first edition of the book have contributed articles on all aspects of collecting. In "21 Years Ago", the book looks at how the market has changed over the period and takes a closer look at items that were featured in the first edition. This year, special attention is given to dual-purpose furniture, Wedgwood, Russian antiques, soft toys and 200 years of Derby porcelain; there is also a special feature that looks at an antique from every century of the millennium.
