I remember one of our members talking about a minkus stamp catalog so I looked on ebay to see what it was. I remember looking at this when I was in my favorite stamp store. But I had my heart set on the Scotts.Now I have both.
Yes, it is. I read these two, as well as his trilogy of "Stories to Collect Stamps By" decades ago. They are worth rereading, not only for the historical insights into the hobby, but for the timeless advice to collectors, as well. I think I will start another thread to post interesting tidbits from his books, as I come across them.

youpiao , I’ve been meaning to get the Stories to Collect Stamps By books for awhile and your post has inspired me to get on eBay and see what I can find. He also has another book, Put a Stamp On It: Seventy-Seven Sparkling Stories Showcasing How Stamps Have Intercepted Historical Events, that I would like to get. The manuscript was found after his death by his son and published in 2016. I’ve also been looking for some copies of Herst’s Outbursts but haven’t been able to find ant so far.

youpiao, I’m not totally sure, but I think that my wife has Kindle Unlimited. If so, I’ll have to check out Put A Stamp On It although I’ll still end up eventually getting the book as I prefer hard copies for my library. Sometimes I think that I have two collections, my stamp collection and my philatelic book collection.
