Notes from the Past

Guide to Stamp Investment

I have a copy of a new publication, Everybody's Guide to Stamp Investment, by Joseph E. Granville, a writer on philatelic investments for whom I have a great respect.  These notes are not a review, and  a much more intelligent comment as to the worth and contents of this book will appear elsewhere in STAMPS in due course, but I will say this, Granville is a trained economist, as everyone must know who subscribes to his Philatelic Investment Letters.  His forecasts are well thought out, and further, his forecasting ability is well regarded.  If you are one of the many who has been trying to lay aside sheets of stamps for investment, you likely will need intelligent guidance, and this book may be your manual.  Published by Hermitage House, Inc., 8 West 13th St., New York 11, N. Y., at $2.95, obtainable direct, or through your local book dealer.

Editor's Note: Yes, this is the Joe Granville who went on to invent on balance volume (a stock market technical indicator).  This indicator led to a considerable following for Granville as a stock market guru.  He was, however, one of those who predicted a market crash many times in the face of the current bull market.  This wrong opinion left him without much support.  His book on stamp investments is offered occasionally in the Publications category here at eBay.
