Patents also provide a wealth of information on various coin operated games.

Many manufacturer's parts manuals have also been reproduced, as well as schematics for many later games. See various suppliers or email the author.

I will buy any coin-op related books at market price, in order to pass them on to other collectors. I also have books to trade or to pass on at cost. I hope to keep these books on the shelves of people who will enjoy them. Please see contact information on the author's page.
