With Antiques Roadshow regular Marc Allum as your guide, go in search of stolen masterpieces, explore the first museums, learn the secrets of the forgers and brush up on your auction technique. Meet the garden gme insured for GBP1 million, track down Napoleon's toothbrush, find out how to spot a corpse in a Victorian photograph - and much more. As Country Life said, the book is t only 'a very useful overall guide for collectors ...and a source of unlikely information, but a laugh a page. A perfect present for virtually everyone.'
