This is the ultimate guide to embarking on, and getting the very most out, the world's most popular hobby, with countless examples of, and stories about, rare, vivid and historical stamps spanning almost two centuries, plus advice on price and guidance about acquisition. An in-depth introduction traces the evolution of the postal services, from the roman mail coaches rushing to the forefront of fighting to wartime Zeppelin flights, and the advent of rail, boat and air as methods of mass delivery. It dissects the modern day adhesive stamp, to help collectors understand the value of their own collection, and the importance of preserving stamps. Different methods of collecting, and the practical aspects of building and maintaining a collection, are covered in detail.
