KIRKUS REVIEW

A fine introduction for the very young beginner. Clear diagrams on hinging, watermarks and so forth, and pictures of many stamps are included in a text that talks interestingly about the origin of stamps, how to buy when starting a collection, how to prepare and care for mounting, watermarks, perforations, day covers"", and suggestions for topical collections. Too there's a handy identification table with listings of countries, the names that appear on their stamps and their units of currency.
