The author of nearly a dozen volumes on stamp collecting, Herman (Pat) Herst, Jr. was the most prolific and well respected stamp collecting author of his day. He had considerable knowledge of ,and contact within the hoby. He was a member of as many as 81 different stamp clubs at one time. Herst was honored with the American Philatelic Society's Luff Award and was elected to Britain's Philatelic Traders Society. He writes with humor in an easy to read style. You will learn from his books, but he always makes his point using stories and anecdotes stemming from his experience as a collector, appraiser, auctioneer and dealer. This book is somewhat dated, but it is well worth a read.
