Herman Herst Jr.’s Nassau Street might be the best-selling philatelic book of all time. The reason is simple: Herst was a delightful storyteller. And while he adored stamps as much as the next collector, he reveled in the tales behind them, which more often than not were populated with a cast of memorable characters.
“There is no shortage of stories in the stamp business,” writes Herst in Nassau Street. His eclectic collection of reflections is sure to bring you joy and put a smile on your face. Dive in to read about:
