Collector Bookstore Notes:

This extensive collectors price guide covers postcards, costumes, noisemakers, decorations, lanterns and much more. A brief history of Halloween is included, which discusses the origins of the holiday, various early American traditions and how Halloween became today's colorful pageant for children.

Publishers Description:

Next to Christmas, more money is spent on Halloween decorations and novelties than on any other holiday. This wonderful book has been credited with inspiring the Halloween collecting craze, giving its devotees a chance to celebrate the holiday all year round!

In addition to color photography and a brand new price guide, there are also many fascinating insights into Halloween. Most people are familiar with the symbols -- ghosts, Jack-O'-Lanterns, witches, bats, skeletons, and black cats -- but few know about Halloween's past. Why does it exist? What is the origin of trick-or-treating? Why does it fall on October 31st?

Through these pages you will experience Halloween celebrations of the past and take a look at Halloween today. For collectors, this is one of the largest collections of Halloween memorabilia.
