"Beginning near the end of the nineteenth century as practical instruments for writing, over the decades fountain pens became objects of beauty and symbols of status. Today they have become the object of many collectors’ desire. This book chronicles the development of the fountain pen with histories of many of the companies and hundreds of examples illustrated in full color.

Fountain Pens and Pencils is for all people using, owning, or collecting fountain pens and their matching pencils. It will introduce the beginning pen collector to the hobby and answer questions asked by advanced pen collectors about the earliest and rarest of pens. Over 1000 fountain pens illustrated with full or nearly full sized photographs, it will help identify pens and provide the opportunity to examine many of the pens that were produced.

George Fischler and Stuart Schneider are well-respected leaders in the antique pen world. They bring their love and knowledge of these works of art to this book. The examples they present represent the whole range of the history and production of fountain pens, from the earliest to the most recent, and from the most common to the rarest.

l.E. Waterman, Parker, Swan, Shaeffer, Wahl- Eversharp, Montblanc, Crocker, , Chilton, Moore, A.A Waterman and many other companies are included in this comprehensive, heavily illustrated history. In addition to photographs of the pens, a large representation of the companies’ advertising has been gathered and reproduced in Fountain Pens and Pencils. A must for collectors, dealers, and all those who appreciate the ingenuity and creativity of industry.”



"The Blue Book" is a must-have in every collector's library. We recommend it wholeheartedly.
