Collecting insulators is synonymous with collecting history. Ever since the first telegraph line was constructed by Samuel Morse in 1844, glass, plastic, and other insulators have played an important part in our technological society. They have made it possible to carry telegraph, telephone, and electrical power lines over vast distances, connecting the nation and the world. This is the first book ever to graphically demonstrate the hundreds of beautiful colors to be found on insulators throughout the world. There are over seven hundred color photographs, each with a descriptive caption to guide both the beginner and advanced collector through a huge assortment of designs and manufacturers. Each photograph carries a current value for the item shown. No other book captures the beauty found within this colorful and historical hobby.
Mike Bruner resides in Clarkston, Michigan. He has been collecting insulators since 1972, has served as the President of the National Insulator Association (NIA), and has published its newsletter, Drip Points. He is the author of several other books.
This book has captivated me and only kindled my passion for glass insulators more. I can be sure that if you are interested in insulators and either getting started or well into the collecting, then this book will make a great addition to your collection.
1. What about an index?
2. Or at the VERY least, group and order? Well you did group by North American and Canadian.
3. By grouping and order I mean the major manufacturers and either chronologically by number or even by date of patent, design or manufacture date. Or even the design groupings. This would be an IMMENSE service. If you think about the novices that may want your book for actual research, not the collector that already knows what you put in there.
4. Plus a little more 'definitive info', ( i.e. the picture upper left page 11,)-- 'Pyrex carnival glass colored insulator.'. This is just is NOT definitive, information yes, but not `definitive.
5. If you included the clear and tinges thereof, straw, amethyst, etc.
6. A color example of design categories. Or contrast the different designs to one another.
7. List of manufacturers and dates they were in business.
But these might be an upgrade for the second edition, it has been nearly 12 years.
