The Great Texas Stamp Collection

Founder and first president of the Texas Postal History Society Charles W. Deaton has written "The Great Texas Stamp Collection" (University of Texas Press, $27.95 hardcover, 152 pages) about rare and highly coveted Confederate stamps that later became prized possessions.

According to Glenn Dromgoole of the Abilene Reporter News the full subtitle of the book pretty well describes it: "How some stubborn Texas Confederate postmasters, a handful of determined Texas stamp collectors, and a few of the world's greatest philatelists created, discovered, and preserved some of the world's most valuable postage stamps."
