This elegant book is the definitive historical account of one of the world?s most important and extensive stamp collections, and the monarchs and keepers who have contributed to it.Inaugurated by Queen Victoria, and enlarged by five successive British monarchs, the main body of the Collection came into being under George V, whose passionate and shrewd acquisition of many other private collections has ensured the unique and comprehensive character of his own.The Queen?s Stamps is a story told through the stamps themselves, many of the most famous of which are produced here in full colour, as well as through astonishing anecdotes featuring the kings, queens and courtiers who brought them together. This informative, surprising, highly illustrated volume is written to appeal to the general reader with an interest in Royal history, as well as to the specialist enthusiast.
