Comments: The author's attempt to present decoys as to "allow the reader to appreciate the workmanship and ingenuity of each piece", which was certainly accomplished. Contents display Michaan's personal decoys, one to a page on black background. Included are examples by the most sought decoy makers such as: Peterson, Janner Sr., Seymour, Meldrum, Schroeder, DeFer, VanDenBossche, Fox, Trombley, Ramey, Bruning, as well as early decoys by unknown New York and Native American makers.

The book arrived yesterday morning. I cannot get over the fact that I ordered a book from New York USA late on Friday, it arrives in Newbury UK on Monday morning... Wow! That's what I call an excellent, almost unbelievably good level of service. I will be buying from Argosy Books again (I hope) and using DHL from now on. So thank you very much indeed, I am very pleased with it. - Ken D.
