Synopsis

Extraordinary cigarette lighters can be found in the strangest of places--in a garage sale, at a swap meet, perhaps even in your own basement. This convenient, hand held guide introduces a history of lighters through a comprehensive, alphabetical presentation of styles, organized according to company name and dating from the late 1800s through the 1980s. In an effort to appeal to new collectors, well-known makers such as Dunhill, Ronson, Evans, Scripto, and Zippo are included, as well as unusual and interesting lighters from smaller and lesser known companies. Never before has a book shown such variety and magnitude of lighters with this much detail and color: over 800 lighters are illustrated along with current market values. Whether you are a collector of lighters or interested in art and design, this book will give you insight into the style, beauty, and value of cigarette lighters. And once you start collecting, it may be hard to break the habit!
