145 pages including index. A collection of historic curiosities that are, or may be, associated with North American postage stamps. For the stories presented in this work, numerous dusty history books and reference works have been researched for those little "gems" of information that present the "other side" to generally accepted beliefs and conceptions. Very often, historic information is based on what others wish us to believe rather than the truth. It is only through the passage of time that the shroud of deception wears thin and mouths silenced in death "speak from their graves" in tattered letters and faded diaries. Adds a new dimension to topical stamp collecting by introducting "Philatelic Curiosities" - strange, unusual and bizarre facts associated with postage stamps. Illustrated in black and white. Clean and unmarked with very light wear. Excellent copy.
