Arthur Blair describes this hobby from all angles, beginning with development of postal services, which existed for almost 6000 years before the world's first adhesive stamp, the famous Penny Black, appeared in 1840. He then writes about the production of stamps (and the rare and valuable misprints) before going into detail on the various branches of philately. Over 425 illustrations (165 in colour) reinforce the text and make this book an expert introduction to an absorbing hobby by a life-long enthusiast.
