Product Details


“This first-class production is a salute to some of the finest philatelic holdings in the United States National Philatelic Collection.” – Airpost Journal

“To say this is a lavishly illustrated book is putting it mildly and all your favorite treasures such as sheet proofs of the 1918 Jenny, Titanic and Hindenburg mail, Persian rug revenues, etc. are there. Surely some new discoveries await you in this garden… there are undoubtedly gaps in your mental database that this book can help fill. Other favorable reviewers in the philatelic press have so far recommended that you buy this book but I say no. Buy two! Think gift.” – K. David Steidley, Collectors Club Philatelist

“While this book is a wonderful introduction the museum, this does not mean you should not make the effort to see the William H. Gross Stamp Gallery at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum for yourself. It is not a replacement for that experience. Consider it a delightful teaser.” – Patricia A. Kaufmann, The American Stamp Dealer & Collector

“I find Every Stamp Tells a Story an entertaining pick-me-up. Consider purchasing a copy the next time you visit the National Postal Museum in Washington, DC.” – Charles Snee, Linn’s Stamp News

“This well-produced book provides an interesting description of the development of the United States Postal Service and the National Stamp Collection as seen through US stamps.” – London Philatelist

“This book can be useful for most collectors and others interested in the history of communication” – The United States Specialist
