Looking for good Japanese books with collecting info

Recommended Posts

I am real familiar with the history and collecting-info books in America (and even the print-to-order and PDF stuff) but know basically nothing about what's available in Japan. I want to be less dumb. One book that was recommended to be was GAME 19XX. The Perfect Catalogue series also seems real nice. What are some other good books that would be useful to some gaijin just trying to eat up all the video game knowledge (variants, LEs, rarities, hardware)? Platform doesn't really matter, I'm thinking of starting with the Game and Watch, X68000, and Famicom Perfect Catalogues.

I know zero Japanese so would be Google Translating these as I read, so I need pretty pictures for dummies and small chunks of text, not narratives.
