The fifth edition of this popular guide is the most complete yet, containing thousands of photographs and completely updated values. The authors provide concise and descriptive information on all models known to collectors through the end of 2007, with almost every model pictured. The sections on non-model collectibles like catalogs, magazines, and promo items have been updated, along with the hobby information on mold marks, and differences in the plastics, colors, and characteristics to help you more easily determine values. Breyer Animal Creations specializes in horses, but also manufactures dogs, cats, farm animals, and wildlife figurines, usually in high-quality plastic, but also in resin and porcelain. You'll find the book overall to be very user friendly, and the cross-reference tables invaluable for identification. It's a must-have reference for all hobbyists from the casual collector to model dealers. 2008 values.
