This book is ideal for the beginning stamp collector. It suppies a great deal of information about the types of stamps that have been produced over time. It also provides tips on how to assemble a collection. The book was written prior to the wide use of personal computers so that some of the ideas probably need modification, such as the use of pen & ink to label pages and sets of stamps.
I found it a useful start to the hobby of stamp collecting
