“This book is for collectors and dealers alike. It will introduce the beginning pen collector to the hobby of pen collecting and answer questions asked by pen dealers about the values of pens. It will identify pens and provide the opportunity to examine many of the pens that were produced.
Over 500 writing instruments are illustrated with full color, nearly full size photographs. They include fountain pens. Pencils, and other historic writing implements.
Concise and informative information accompanies each photo, including a guide to the price of each piece. If a pen appears here, it is either interesting, collectible, or a good example of a particular maker’s pen.
The hobby of collecting fountain pens has grown tremendously over the years and this is the kind of guide collectors need to for quick and easy reference.
It is handy enough to carry into the field and beautiful enough to display with your prized collections.”
