Table of Contents

More than 4,500 corkscrews spanning three centuries are organized into 59 chapters featuring over 3,000 color photos. This huge volume gives details of the corkscrews presented in a reader-friendly form: you'll find descriptions and markings, as well as patent and registered design information. Part 1 has 18 chapters and focuses on the early history of the corkscrew, including more than 900 corkscrews primarily from the 18th century and even corkscrew sale sheets from that era. In Part, 2 over 3,600 corkscrews are organized in 41 chapters according to types, including Bar & Wall Mounted, Bells, Bows, Rack & Pinion, Screwless Extractors, Whistles, and a final chapter called Worthy of Mention. The three authors represent their own collections as well as those from other enthusiasts in North America, Europe, and Australia. The book is a compendium of knowledge unprecedented in the history of corkscrew collection.
