KIRKUS REVIEW

Similar in format to the 1001 Questions Answered About...series, this has almost 2000 entries to cover all sorts of information about stamps of the United States and the world. From general to specialized areas, this not only answers questions on charity stamps, coils, revenues, phonies, metered and vending machine items but goes into paper, printing and reproduction, artists, cancellations and postmarks, collecting- with its equipment and literature; it has historical sections and material on rarities; and in the 1192 inclusions there is much to inform and interest the beginning as well as the experienced philatelist.
