“The book is an essential guide for who is beginning, or "wants to begin" a fountain-pen collection and at the same time it is useful for who is already keen on this type of collection which perhaps without realizing it many of us have started at one time or another.
Numerous illustrations in black and white and a rich series of beautiful coloured plates encrich this essential text, born from the research of the author in a field which is extremely miserly in giving information, technical details and bibliographic references.
The first edition sold out so rapidly that the publishers have been urged to print a second edition enriched both in illustrations and in ichnography.
Taking into consideration the “international” interest shown on the subject and the great number of copies sold abroad (U.S.A., Japan, Germany, France, Great Britain, Canada) we have come to conclusion that a bi-lingual text in necessary (Italian-English). We believe that even though this could perhaps distract the Italian reader, at the same time it can be a constructive and interesting way to become familiar with the technical vocabulary used in the abundant English publications of this subject. The diffusion of this book abroad guaranties its quality and represents a significant initiative in the panorama of national publishing.”
