In 836 color photographs and engaging text, this book provides the reader with a superb survey of hundreds of corkscrews, all accompanied by their original boxes, wrappers, and packaging. Old and new corkscrews (both 19th and 20th centuries) of every variety are on display, including bar mounts, direct pulls, figurals, lazy tongs, levers, prong pullers, and the Waiters Friend. Also included are useful details about the manufacturers, their trademarks, and copyrights--much of this information coming straight from the original packaging. Current values are included in the captions.
Don Bull is an avid collector of corkscrews, beer advertising openers, and beer related advertising. He is also the accomplished author of **The Ultimate Corkscrew Book and Bull's Pocket Guide to Corkscrews, among others.
