There are 2,800 pages with an excess of 6000 images, many historic, many never before seen. This includes everything from green classic windows/doors of Norway (1954), to the very rare GEAS LEGO sets of Sweden (1950), to a brown box Town Plan set that was a Sears Department Store exclusive in the USA (1969). There are chapters on everything imaginable from Promotional sets for the Scandinavian Ferry Lines, to the Weetabix and Kellogg's Cereal sets of Britain/Ireland... there are Italian Minitalia style sets sold in Japan... a wavy flag of the Faroe Islands (looks similar to the other 5 Scandinavian flags), wooden box sets in 80 different flavors... Continental European retailer individual parts boxes... a French/Norwegian/Danish #800 set so unusual (1965-66) that no instructions were included, and we are left without any model ideas to build. There are the variations to the gray 12V train track era sets that came in different boxes, with different contents... all the Scala Necklace/Jewelry sets, Paradisa in all its' pink glory, every Fabuland set ever made, the legendary 1:87 cars/trucks that can command up to $4000 per vehicle.
It's in there! Also there's a 400 page dollars and Euros pricelist for the older (1949-1980) sets, where the Bricklink database doesn't always have a recent price entry. And there's early LEGO road signs with bases in red, silver, blue, dark brown, light browk, light gray, medium gray, dark gray, and white... printed bricks with THEATRE/THEATER/TEATER/TEATRO in 5 different colors.
The Billund Archives have little information on early Norwegian, Swedish, USA and Canadian sets... since they let the licensee's do what they wanted without interference from Billund. So there are a lot of items that are unknown to the Billund Archives and Collections.
Anyway... 73 chapters, 4 appendices, 2 price lists, and one large table of contents... 1/3 of a million words... it's all there...
Here's an image and the list of chapters/subchapters...
Note: Poster TSI of Germany had some criticism of the sample chapter... but I made modifications to address the issues he made.
Shipping to USA $2.00, Canada $3.00, rest of world... $3.50.
But the download is the best way to go... no shipping and no Customs!!
Here's a direct link... you don't even need a Paypal account (even though you get their protection)...
If you have one of my old CDs... this new DVD has updates to all the old chapters (some were rewritten with dozens of new images)... as well as chapters covering the 1980s and early 1990s. My first CD (2006) started with 1000 pages... now the DVD has 2800 pages.
P.S. If this belongs elsewhere in the Eurobricks Forum... my appologies... 2 years away... the brain gets pretty fried from all the LEGO detective work! :-)
