A reprint of the classic book written by Edward J. Nankivell, a member of the Institute of Journalists in London and an avid stamp collector. He wrote this book to promote the virtues of stamp collecting as a healthy recreation for everyone from the Price of Wales to ordinary school children. It was originally published in 1902. The timelessness of his lively arguments is apparent by their validity today. This book presents a fascinating and charming look at early stamp collecting. Its very readable narrative also provides a delightful glimpse into the wider world of pre-World War I England. The original book included a substantial section offering stamps and stamp collecting equipment from the original publisher. That section, as well as other illustrations, has been reproduced here and offers a unique look at the stamp collecting world of yesterday. Completely reformatted and typeset for readability.

This groundbreaking book examines the relationship between the development of the consumer society and the rise of collecting by individuals and institutions. Rusell Belk considers how and why people collect, as individuals, corporations and museums, and the impact this collecting has on us and our culture.
Collecting in a Consumer Society outlines the history of museum collecting from ancient civilizations to the present. It also looks at aspects of consumer culture - advertizing, department stores, mass merchandizing, consumer desires, and how this relates to the activity of collecting.
