Stamp Collecting As A Pastime

RRP $27.50

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

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.

The Stampeder, by Samuel Alexander White, first published in 1910. Britton's steam-yacht tore out its lungs in protest at the black smudge of a coasting vessel reeling straight across its bows. The siren bellowed thrice in a choking fury of warning and denunciation till the echoes boomed over the Algerian harbor and floated high up to the Mustapha Superieure, where English lords slept at peace in luxurious hotels. Disconcerted by this tremendous volume of sound, the coaster vacillated, veered and yawed as if under some drunken steering-hand, to leap forward unwarily and bury her weather-beaten prow in the white side of the Mottisfont. The terrific impact swept the yachts forecastle clear of snoring sailors, and, after shooting the temporary owner lieadlong from his berth, commenced to polish the companionway passage with his features, an operation which he instinctively though not wholly wakefully resented by a frantic grasping for something substantial."
