Images Of America

Linda Meabon

ISBN 0738512540

This book is available with or without the matching Zippo lighter. As the title states it is a book of images - Photographs from the Zippo archives, Zippos being manufactured, Staff outings, Blaisdell family photos etc. It is a great book, full of history, with most of the photographs not being available elsewhere. Whilst the rating below looks from a collectors point of view, it should be noted that in the majority of the books about Zippo lighters, Linda Meabon is credited. Linda is the Zippo Archivist and her knowledge and enthusiasm is often remarked on. Both of these attributes are evident in this book.

Rating - For the historian, it's great, but it's not much use as a collectors guide.
