The 8th edition of the Charlton Standard Catalogue of Royal Doulton Figurines, was released February 5th, 2003. This 552-page catalogue lists and illustrates the complete family of Royal Doulton figurines, from the turn of the 19th century through to the beginning of the 21st century. Almost 5,000 figures are listed with all the necessary information: designer, height, colour, dates of issue and discontinuation, varieties, and the series to which they may belong. The all-new 8th edition has five major chapters. They cover the early figures of Harradine, Marshall, Noke and Tinsworth, plus the figures of the HN Series, the M Series, the Classique, and Art is Life Series. Also included is an informative introduction, an advertisers section, information on the International Collectors Club, Where to Buy, plus a chapter on Collecting by Series, and a handy alphabetical index. All prices are completely revised, taking into account the impact of E-commerce and online auctions on the Royal Doulton market today. It is impossible not to consider the effect of the online auction and its effect on the collectable market. Thirty-two pages of colour, containing over 100 images offers the collector a cross-section of the many types of collectable figures available to them.
