Table of Contents
The day in 1826 when John Walker, a chemist of 59 High Street, Stockton-onTees, invented the friction match is a landmark in the history of illumination. Where Walker led, others followed, and within a few years the world had a cheap and easy method of obtaining an immediate flame after centuries of tedious tinder-box manipulation and a few decades of cumbersome and costly `instantaneous light' contrivances.
Collecting small antiques can be of absorbing interest, partly because the items are easy to display and partly because they can he found in a great variety of places, including antique shops, public auctions, bric-a-brac stalls, jumble sales and flea markets. Each title in this new series is written by an expert in his or her chosen subject. There is a wealth of practical advice to help the novice over any initial hurdles, guidance on prices and over 100 illustrations to help with identification. Each hook could lead the way to a remarkable satisfying hobby.
