Synopsis: An unknown hobby but a few generations ago, stamp collecting is now arguably one of the world's most popular avocations. This fascinating text endeavours to state the merits of stamp collecting, as well as to impart the enthusiasm felt by the author for this pastime onto the reader in the hopes that they might be inspired to embrace philately as a hobby. Chapters contained within this antique text include: 'On Collecting Postage Stamps'; 'Planning and Arranging the Collection'; 'Specialised Collections'; 'Technical Matters'; 'Stamps, Desirable and Otherwise'; 'Forged and Faked Stamps'; 'Sir Rowland Hill and Other Pioneers'; 'The Line-Engraved Stamps of Great Britain'; and many more. This book has been elected or modern republication due to its educational value, and is proudly republished here complete with a new introduction to the subject.
