This is a great little book, full of information about Corgi Toys from their beginnings, to the peak of the late sixties to their fall in the early eighties and their resurrection as a collector's vehicle today. Lavishly illustrated, rekindles old memories and gives the desire to seek out old models for the collection. Ideal for anyone who loves diecast model cars. I'd love to see a similar book for Matchbox cars.
