1976 unsure if still in print.

I'm another hoarder. I can't walk past a second-hand catalogue without picking it up. I once found a full set of MNH QEII Aden, including all shades, in the pages of an old SG Commonwealth catalogue!

I have a terrible habit of accumulating everything, then selling of the ones I don't use twelve months later. My wife is challenged by this.

My current holdings are quite extensive, but mainly GB and Empire-related.

No one is going to understand a stamp collector...apart from another stamp collector. As revstampman said, it is a disease, a wonderful,
fantastic ever evolving disease

The Joy of Stamps
Hunter Davies
The Joy of Stamps is the world's first funny book about philately. After all, how many jokes do you know about stamps? Compared with mothers-in-law, stamps have hardly been a subject for wit or humour.
Hunter Davies, in his prize-winning column in Stamp and Postal History News, has delighted the world of stamps in the last few years by producing a consistently light-hearted, amusing at the same time informative personal account about the world's greatest hobby.
In this book packed with philatelic facts and fancies as well as cartoons and jokes
he reveals the vicissitudes suffered by an ordinary stamp collector. One of the nation's two million enthusiasts, he started hesitantly, knowing very little about his new passion; like most collectors, he began as a child, then gave it up completely,
returning in later life. And like most collectors, he is constantly starting new collections, discovering new shops and stalls, going to fairs and auctions, trying to sell his swaps, trying to beat down dealers, suffering the joys and the agonies which all
collectors will identify with.
The Joy of Stamps is a unique book about stamps, a pleasure for both the beginner and the expert, for the old or young, and will give joy to every family who has ever had a stamp collector.

Kirk, Hunter is a funny sort of guy, when you're reading him, he stikes you as the guy next door type, not really elevated philately,
with an innocent humour, that sometimes he seems to try too hard.
I kinda put him in the "nerdy" pigeonhole, but as you read on, you suddenly find yourself relating more and more to his experiences,
and you experience shock as you realise, you are a nerd as well!

Behind it all, I think there is quite a smart and canny fella,
(well I bought his book didn't I?

In a nice way, I reckon his book is great reading for the dunny (aust=w/c) instead of the scraps of newsprint, like there is in ours,
The only thing is, you are going to have to explain to your wife,
(and perhaps your kids) why you suddenly burst out in laughter whilst locked in the toilet.

I'm worried Jubilee,
the bookcase is sagging under the weight, and I still have what?
20 years of collecting left.
It's silverfish heaven at my place.
