Vintage Child's Stamp Collecting Book with Original Box 1958, Postage Stamps, Childrens Book, Craft & Hobby Books, Postage Stamp
This is a delightful beginner's stamp collecting album entitled "My First Stamp Album - The Ideal Album for the Beginning Collector". It contains 2500 pictures, 4300 spaces for stamps, world maps, stamp identifier, as well as historical and geographic descriptions of each country listed in the book. This hard cover children's book was published by Minkus Publications, NY, copyright 1958.
The set originally contained stamps, magnifier and tongs, but they no longer accompany this wonderful old stamp book. The album, itself, is in very god vintage condition without tears or stains, just gentle signs of use, as seen in our third photo. The box has a 1" tear in the lid. Just convo us if you would like to see additional pictures. You will find a handful of stamps already placed in the collector's book by the original owner, but with 4300 places for stamps, there is plenty of life left in this nice old children's book. It would make a great gift for any inspiring stamp collector, young or old.
Book - 11.25" x 8.5 1/2" is 1/2"
Box - 12" x 9.5" x 1"
