Very clean and tight. A unique assembly of Geography, Social and Political History, and Postal Information. Stamp collecting is the world's most popular indoor hobby, and often leads to a detailed study of the geography and history of entire continents. THE STAMP ATLAS, written by postal historians, tells the history of each stamp issuing authority, country or geographic unit, and details the changes in the boundaries of countries from earliest times. It explains which stamps were available and when, how the many changes over the centuries have been reflected in the postal markings, and the operation of the post. The text offers a wealth of information, and is buttressed by 144 maps, many in colour, prepared by a leading cartographer. The maps interlock with the textual information and offer at-aglance presentation of the boundary changes, dates of first issues, and other important philatelic facts. There are over 750 illustrations as well, and a comprehensive index enables the reader to locate every stamp-issuing territory in the text and on the maps. The depth of research gives a new angle to the problems of the philatelist and postal historian, and provides in an easy and readable form a general reference work for hobbyists and students alike. THE STAMP ATLAS is the first book to provide a unique assembly of geography, social and political history and postal information.
