Book Description
Roy Rogers may have been Republic's "King of the Cowboys," but he was lesser nobility when it came to licensed merchandise. The "King of the Cowboy Merchandisers" was Hopalong Cassidy. In the three and one-half year period beginning in late 1949 and ending after the 1952 Christmas season Hoppy rode so far ahead of the pack that his competition had to eat his dust.

From Library Journal
Fifty years ago, mention of early American country antiques usually brought to mind visions of spinning wheels, cobbler's benches, and interiors typical of early New England. Tastes have changed, and collectors' interests have broadened to include items found in all regions of the country. Folk arts, farm implements, tools, kitchen equipment, and Shaker ware that might have been made in the 19th century or even in the early 20th century are now collected eagerly. Editor Rinker and the various Warman's price guides have long been recognized for accurately tracking public interest in antique market trends, and this book reflects a major area of current interest. It is divided into such broad categories as "Furniture" and "Lighting," with information on the history of each craft, a bibliography, notice of collectors'...

General but very utilitarian, Warman's Paper covers a history of the field, describes pertinent terminology and the care of paper, contains addresses for shows and auction houses, and discusses the current market. Designed to be searched either by topic or subject, it offers prices for items like broadsides, animation cells, and sheet music that are hard to find in...
