The World of Stamps and Stamp Collecting

Thirty years ago I wrote a book with David Lidman who was the stamp columnist of the New York Times. The book was called The World of Stamps and Stamp Collecting and it was published by Charles Scribners, Sons. The book was well received and we have now posted it on our website so that all collectors can now enjoy it. The book has a history of postal communications, discussion on printing techniques and lots of stories about famous stamps and famous philatelists. Philately is a fun field to write for and one of the reasons is that work never becomes dated. There are no new philatelic theories and the history behind the stamps is the same today as it was when I wrote the book. The stories are good ones and if you have enjoyed this blog, I think you will enjoy reading our book. You can find it
