KIRKUS REVIEW

Fascinating for any age interested in stamp collecting, this book which tells of a bit over 100 years of history (rooted in the past of communication systems), of romance, legend, anecdote, drama, personality, chicanery; in stories of collectors, of unusual stamps, of dealers and agencies. There's lots of sound routine information -- not for the beginner, but for the boy or girl who is interested in specializing. Guide to market value and specialty field; glossary; etc.
