Just bought this book. It's huge and heavy! Actually it is a single volume encyclopaedia (not two-volume as stated) with all entries in alphabetical order. But it is all you need for referring for anything Hammer.

A very interesting item that I picked up will only be of interest to UK members. Will Hammer was a stage name for William Hinds who founded Hammer Films. His brother was Frank Hinds who ran a jewellery store. F. Hinds is a well known name with, at the moment, 116 jewellery stores in High Streets and Shopping Malls.

I just got my copy today. It's a gorgeously bound hardcover tome with some 891 pages (before the notes and index). You can get it for about $46 if you look around.

Clyde,

I got mine from DeepDiscount, buying through Google Express. I got a $10 first-buy discount on it, hence the $46 price.
