About the Author

Maine Antique Digest is the publication of record for the antiques market in America. Now this venerable publication, based in Waldoboro, Maine, has opened its archives to reveal the greatest stories to fill its pages in 30 years: the fascinating personalities, amazing discoveries, major sales, auction dramas, and staggering scandals that have defined the $20 billion-a-year antiques industry. This engrossing look at M.A.D.—“the bible of our business,” as one prominent New York dealer described it—has enormous appeal for fans of Antiques Road Show, eBay, yard sales, and antiques shows. It covers the years 1973 through 2003, with more than 45 stories that introduce unforgettable people, revisit landmark sales of silver, tramp art, pottery, paintings, and furniture, and recount famous frauds, forgeries, and crimes of passion—such as that of the collector who embezzled millions to indulge his singular desire for the world’s best vintage Bakelite costume jewelry. Lita Solis-Cohen became Maine Antique Digest’s first staff reporter in 1975 and remains as senior editor today. She has lectured, taught, consulted, and written extensively on antiques for many regional and national publications. She lives in Rydal, Pennsylvania.
