Common Sense Philately

"It is easier for me to explain what this book is not than to tell you what it is. This is not a book of generalizations and platitudes about stamp collecting; I assume that you have had a surfeit of them already. But it is a book of facts and practical advice about the pleasures and problems of our hobby as it exists within the framework of contemporary society in the United States. This is not a beginner's manual; it is not an encyclopedia of technical data. I again assume that you can measure perforations and detect watermarks quite competently. But it is a handbook, specific in its treatment of the mechanics of philately, ranging from the trade to the press, and from albums and accessories to taxes and insurance. I have drawn on twenty years' experience in the hobby in an effort to present a sensible approach to a grossly misrepresented pastime, so that you may find fulfillment in it as I have." B. R. M.
