Thanks for the heads-up Nige. I'll quite likely invest in a copy for its photographic content. The only "problem" with such price-guide books is that they rapidly become out-of-date, unless there are regular, updated re-prints which take account of the inevitable fluctuations in market prices.

Ooops...hit the wrong tab!   

Makes sense. One such book I had back in the 90s used to have an updated insert published at intervals which you just slipped inside the book. Much more cost effective than re-doing the whole book itself.

I just received my copy of this book and have been asked to say a few words . And a brief review .
Firstly the book is out now and is available from Simon Lannoy at www.themilitariadealers.com or from Mick prodger at his site www.vintageflyinghelmets.com or from www.trendingcollectables.com directly.
The book is excellent and presented in a small soft back format aprox 8x5 inches ,the book will be updated annually with new issues and is designed as a resource for the new and seasoned collector alike, to keep an eye on "trending" (as is often the case in our field of collecting) and price fluctuations in the market place . Unlike the age old "antiques price guides" which are based on auction prices, all prices presented in the book are actual prices a collector has paid a dealer for that item. All prices are presented in £ $U.S.. and € .
The layout is very nice with all items presented with a brief description and beautifully photographed (I'm very proud to have a few items I own in the book maybe you will too ? ) ,the items covered are from a cross section of our collecting field and cover Wings, Flight jackets , Flight helmets, Oxygen equipment,  Goggles, Uniforms and Aircraft parts from Japan U.S. Britain Italy Germany etc... and the nationality an items is from is clearly marked on the top of the page with a full colour national roundel to make identification and reference easier .
I can wholly recommend the book, and I guarantee you will say "I WANT IT " ! at least once (or several times in my case) on reading the book .
well worth the few £ $ or € .
