In the world of Tin Toys, the products of E P Lehmann have formed a distinctive sub-group both from the point of view of subject and style. They represent all that was great in German toys in both form and movement.

This superbly researched and illustrated book compiled with the close co-operation of the Lehmann company, sets new standards in 'one-make' toy histories.

The authors are fortunate in having been able to deal in facts rather than conjecture and give some fascinating insights into the birth of the German Toy Industry in the late nineteenth century.

Every toy manufactured by E P Lehmann is illustrated together with many references to toys that were planned but never produced.

220 pages. 700 illustrations including 220 in full colour.
