Item description for Collectible Toy Soldiers (Collectibles) by Dominique Pascal...

Mustered together here are over 400 soldiers from the armies of Napoleon, King Arthur, the Kaiser, Grant and Lee: knights, grenadiers and lancers, cavalry officers and foot soldiers-all reporting for peacetime duty as collectible toy soldiers. These heroic metal men wear colorful uniforms from the Age of Chivalry to the world wars, on parade again, reporting in with a caption that places each of them as figures in history. The adult war gamer and collector alike will instantly recall being a powerful general commanding a childhood army of valiant model soldiers like these.

Reviews - What do customers think about Collectible Toy Soldiers (Collectibles)?

Collecting Toy Soldiers  Jan 4, 2004
This appears to be a French publication, written in English and aimed at the U.S. market. The author has written 6 books in the "collectibles" series on very diverse themes and here has drawn on the knowledge and collections of some of the best known collectors and dealers in Paris. There is little authoritative information in the text and what there is has mostly been taken from "Petits Soldats" and "CBG" by Christian Blondieau. That said, the format of the book is excellent with clear full colour pictures on every page showing predominantly French manufactures, the majority of which have have not been illustrated elsewhere.

The section on Flats (52 pages) is good concentrating on some of the earlier and lesser known manufacturers rather than the big German names. The section on Lead (152 pages) mostly covers recent CBG Mignot, connosieur collectors models and modern white metal "toy soldiers", all of which are nice to see and may be collectable but were never made to be played with so are not toy soldiers! The chapter on Alluminium (48 pages)is very nice, concentrating on the products of Quiralu, as you would expect. Plastic and Composition figures are lumped in together (68 pages) and there is quite a nice mix here - early Starlux plastics and some of the lesser known French composition manufacturers.

I found it refreshing to see a book which contains virtually nothing on Wm Britains, Heyde, Dimestore and Lineol/Elastolin as these are all more than well covered elsewhere. At the price, it is exceedingly good value for money and given the dearth of knowledge on French toy soldiers, outside of France, I would certainly recommend it.
