“Antique items of all kinds are in great demand amongst collectors and as prices continue to rise more people are turning towards small everyday articles. Writing antiques are still quite widely available, have great charm and historic interest and are, in many cases, moderately priced. When quill pens began to be superseded by steel nibs and penholders these were rapidly manufactured, in true Victorian fashion, in numerous shapes, sizes and materials. Stamps, first issued in 1840, were stored in special stamp boxes. There were inkwells of every size and shape for desk, pocket, writing box or inkstand. Beautifully decorated folders for blotting paper replaced the old pounce pots of pumice for drying writing. This book describes and illustrates many of the writing antiques available, from magnificent inkstands to simple penwipers and ink bottles, and aims to help the collector identify and asses those he may find.”
