Description

Soldiers of Greater Britain, Britains Limited Lead Soldiers 1893-1924


Joe Wallis

A comprehensive history of the lead figures, equipment and mechanical toys designed and produced by the firm of Britains Limited between 1893 and 1924. This hard cover book has 782 photographs, a company history, identification charts, a glossary, and an index. The text describes the items in an easy to use format with color photos on the same pages as the descriptions. Each set's contents, dates of production, and any changes in contents are noted. This book, along with his previous books Regiments of All Nations and Armies of the World provide a complete annotated catalog to Britains traditional lead soldiers made from 1893 to 1966. Soldiers of Greater Britain answers long-standing questions about "ancient" Britains figures, their early mechanical toys, the accuracy of their models, the sources of their designs, the smaller scale B Series, their Paris Office production, and shows all of Fred Whisstock's box labels for Sets 1-224.
