TOY AND MODEL TRAMS OF THE WORLD:
Volume 1; Toys, Die Casts and Souvenirs
A4 portrait card cover, 128 pages, full colour throughout. Published by Adam Gordon.
Following a lifetime of modelling and collecting small trams, Gottfried Kure and David Voice have teamed up to pool their knowledge in this definitive work describing toy and model trams, trolleybuses and underground trains from over the whole world. In Volume 1 the Authors look at toy trams, all die cast small trams and the vast souvenir market. The book gives invaluable tips about collecting and looking after toy trams, then covers historical tinplate, tinplate after 1950, wood, card, die cast, plastic, all other materials, souvenirs and children's toys. To help identify items there is a manufacturer's index and around 400 illustrations, mainly full colour photographs. Over 1,800 individual small trams, trolleybuses and underground trains are included and there are around 480 manufacturers name's, most entries having an historical summary. The book also guides the collector with market price estimates for toy trams no longer in production.
A4 portrait card cover, 188 pages, full colour throughout. Published jointly by TLRS and Adam Gordon.
