Stamp Books, Today's Mail

Today’s Mail – 21 July 2015

AmericanHistoryAlbum001

No stamps arrived in the mail today, but I did receive two additions to my slowly-expanding philatelic library.  An American History Album: The Story of the United States Told Through Stamps is a beautifully-illustrated book using stamps to explain aspects of American history and society.  Dictionary of World Stamps: Philatelic Atlas of the World is akin to a condensed version of Rossiter and Flower’s Stamp Atlas, the “dictionary” being an indexed gazetteer of the locations pinpointed on the maps in the first half of the book.  Both were obtained at steep discount and significantly reduced shipping from charitable organizations in the UK.
