Synopsis

This is the first all-color book devoted to collecting the toy soldiers and figures that were sold in the Five-and-Dime stores. Over 650 photographs, showing in excess of three thousand toy figures, are arranged in thematic style and and cover military and non-military toys. Compiled by some of the worlds leading authorities on toy soldiers and figures, the book traces the history and development of toy soldiers and figures between 1900 and 1960. Complete with price guide, explanations of terminology, and an index, the book is a groundbreaking reference guide to collecting lead and composition toy figures. Over 60 manufacturers products are represented and the thematic/category chapters make it easy for experienced and new collectors to easily locate figures.
