    Deb, do you think this is the "best" of the Lambrou books for people like me (GPPs -general pen practioners} or one of his other books?

    Waiting for my 'stimulus' check for more books and a couple of ebonites, particularly an old Waterman with a great 14k nib.

    Probably this is best. There's also Fountain Pens Vintage and Modern (1989) but it is a little more dated.

    I've got his Fountain Pens of the World, which certainly seems quite comprehensive. I don't have a deep enough interest in the Japanese history to get his book focusing on that but FPotW gives at least a decent look outside the US/UK history.

    For Montblanc collectors, the following are quite helpful. The Diary is going to be expensive if you find one. Collectable Stars is useful for the postwar pens. Made in Spain is interesting for the unusual celluloids not generally available from Germany and Denmark.

    Edited by Dragoni and Fichera. Though it has an index I wouldn't regard this as a reference, mainly because some of the information in the section on individual pens is inaccurate. However, it takes a wider viewpoint on the whole subject of fountain pens and is informative and entertaining. Not an essential but a good read. Cheap when I bought it second-hand many years ago. Prices are variable now - cheapest I saw was £32 + postage.

    Stefan Wallrafen , one of the Collectible Stars co-authors has recently published a Soennecken book covering the company from the 1870's to 1995

    Very similar chronological layout to the Collectible Stars books, with tons of pen photos with text in English and German along with detailed tables of all identified model variants from early eyedoppers (1888) through the gorgeous pre-war Rheingolds and up to the 1960's including the Swiss production models and Swedish The Tower brand

    Very detailed and comprehensive , even more that the two Collectible Stars books, my only criticism is the pen pictures are scaled larger than real size but all the tables have the relevant dimensions so this can be forgiven

    A great book about history and design. I've been studying this for a long time and decided to arrange everything in the form of research work.
    I turned to the service for help and here's a review of it https://www.topwritersreview.com/rev...yhomeworkdone/ I'd like to take this book as a basis for writing, although there are many other good books and useful sources.
