Les Briquets Zippo

Eric Legučbe

ISBN 2 86738 5989

Not much that I can say about this one, as the book is written is French. The book starts with a section on the history of Zippo, then moves on to how they are made, followed by a section on Zippo repairs and the famous guarantee. This is followed by sections on Zippo in the wars, Zippo in the movies and the inevitable collectors guide. From what I have managed to translate, the book appears to be reasonably accurate and well written. There a quite a few photographs of French issued Zippos that I have never seen before, so to me it was worth the price.

Rating - For the French speaking collector it looks like a useful book.
