This big new volume, devoted exclusively to oil can containers features over 750 new full color photographs of diverse oil cans from the 1880s to the 1980s. Included are motor oil, aviation and marine oils as well as oils and lubricants for household use.

A special section identifies the cans used by thirty-two Canadian oil companies. The book includes helpful information for collectors including how to identify, date, and grade the condition of a can, collectors' resources, and a list of oil can manufacturers.
