Table of Contents

Steam toys from the late 19th an early 20th centuries occupy a special niche in the world of antique toys. But steam toys are appreciated in their own right, as ingenious inventions and charming contraptions! Hooked to a steam engine or operated by hand, these pieces move-mills grind, blacksmiths hammer, Ferris wheels and carousels revolve, woodsmen chop, and mistrels dance. They can be delightfully intricate, colorful, and creative.

Never before has a book focused on these marvelous toys from bygone days. Almost 600 full-color photographs document the work of 25 major manufacturers, with illustrations of the marks they used. Dimensions, years of production, and current market values are discussed for each piece. No toy collector should be without this fantastic book!
