Frequently, I am asked about accumulations of postage stamps which Uie holder is willing to donate to anyone interested, There are several young collectors in the community that exchange stamps at the library. 1 understand that Mrs. Duncan has a container for any material donated which is distributed from time to time to provide the thrill of a find and keep up the interest. So, if you have clippings with foreign stamps, commemoratives, or higher values from parcel post, here is the place for them to flnd a home. Nearly anything would be useful except the I "ill t-e turning over the mon- thh Numismatic Scrap book for '••<!'< enthusiasts, arcl perhaps sonv- others as well. Coin and currency references are rather limited. There is the newest edition of the Friedburc catalog on paper currency, the 1965 Red Book, Fell's Coin Book dated 1953, a 1 %0 edition of the World's Most Popular Coins, and a genera] information book entitled Coin Collecting In A Nutshell. Stamp coverage is limited to the 19C2 Scott United States Specialized, a 19G3 government publication, and a much outdated work on the British area. 1 will soon release to the library the 1965 Scott's Combined catalog of the World which will fill in the most obvious gap. - o - The antique department has several quite new books which may be of Interest to you. They include a History of the Stourbridge Glass Industry, Antique Fakes & Reproductions, Sandwich Glass, Victorian Glass, Early 16,000 POUND GUARANTEED CAPACITY!

There are also 4 new soft cover brxjkJets on Havlland china patterns. A popular twosome are the Hartung vol. IV and price list for Carnival Glass. We very much need, however, the . emain- ing three volumes. The price list has columns for peach, marigold, blue-purple-amethyst together , green and pastel. The introduction notes that pastel may be white, clear, clamhroth, lavender, smoky, a-jua, pastel blue, pastel green, buttercup yellow and vaseline. Red is apparently the ultra rare and and the price is suggested at 40 to 50% higher than the pastel. Unfortunately, the precise details on the characteristics of these colors and shades are found in vol. D. Nothing is said about a piece that combines two basic glass colors. The red is a tnie cherry red and is not carnival without the iridescence. The true white has a light to heavy Incident of frostyness. Without this, it is not white but clear. The problem continues since the prices are given for the colors under the patterns. Some patterns are obvious but many are not. It is In the four volume set that the designs are pictured and named. The author clearly states that her project contains only items that she has handled or seen so, of course, collectors may well come across non listed items. The same might be true for colors as I saw one splendid piece at the Algona show two years ago that to my eyes was clearly gray. Maybe this is called smoky and what I call smoky Is clam broth. Since I detest clams, I am not familiar with their appearance In this form. - o - There are several miscellaneous general references plus numerous works on the skill type hobbies, which I did not attempt to list. I also neglected to check on fire arms. I think every collector could assume some responsibility for his field. A reference which may be outdated as far as pricing is concerned will nevertheless contain much basic information useful to the beginner or someone with just a casual interest. I know that the head librarian, Mrs. Phillips, would welcome not only your contributions but your suggestions as to possible additional purchases.
