purple end-papers; A classic work on postcard collecting. Very well illustrated by 32 pages of half-tone pictures & eight pages in colour. The authors' primary concern is to give practical advice to the collector: where to find cards and how to go about starting a collection, how to restore and classify, how to value and date. All the major types of postcard are covered-topographical, commemorative, First World War, portrait, political. humorous, heraldic, silk embroidered and others. Many little-known facts are given about the development of the official postal stationery card which preceded the picture postcard itself, and about individual picture postcard artists and publishers. The appendix includes a chronology of historical events featured on postcards, lists of publishers and their trademarks, a chart of the main issues of 'officials', lists of today's postcard magazines and dealers, and the authors' own special key to valuing, which is proof against price inflation. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 214 pages. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact.
