by Stephen J. Spignesi
This extremely rare, oversized, 272-page encyclopedia of Mayberry information (including an A-Z trivia index cross-referenced to specific episodes) is a really handy reference. It has ultra-sharp photos and lots of charts, stats and cast interviews, plus test your skills on the huge trivia quiz.
The book was originally published in 1987. It's now out of print and virtually impossible to find, but we've still got one hardcover copy in outstanding condition, even after 27 years! It mostly has some gently shelf wear on the spine and tips of the cover corners. The inside pages are pristine. It's not major shelf wear on the cover at all, but it is just noticeable enough to mention...and therefore to lower the price a bit.
