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 world's 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.

Don Pielin lives in the Chicago area, where he organizes the Chicago Old Toy Soldier Show, and has been an avid collector for 30 years. Norman Joplin is the author of five previous books on toy soldiers and figures in England who now resides in Arizona. Verne Johnson lives in Washington state and has collected for nearly 30 years. He co-organizes the Pacific Northwest Toy Soldier and Figure Show each fall. Kent Wood is a professional artist and photographer in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
