KIRKUS REVIEW

A basic book about a favorite pastime, this covers the history and practices of stamp collecting, preserves an even point of view, cautions you not to let your hobby ride you. The history of early stamps, starting a collection (the beginner's should be catholic); equipment; fashions in countries and stamps; condition; bargains; frauds; remainders and reprints; etc. Excellent introductory material to a popular fascination in which many indulge- this should have a longterm sale.
