The Book of Fountain Pens and Pencils
After the tremendous reception their first book received, Stuart Schneider and George Fischler went to work on this, their second volume. To their delight, despite their comprehensive study of fountain pens and pencils, there were hundreds that had not been included in Fountain Pens and Pencils: The Golden Age of Writing Instruments. This completely new collection will fill you with delight, as well. The colors, designs, and general creativity of the pens illustrated make it easy to understand why this is one of the fastest growing areas of collecting. As the authors say, "The hobby of pen collecting has mushroomed beyond expectations. We are witness to a hobby with incredible appeal throughout the world."
While the first book illustrated over 1000 pens mostly made by companies like Scheaffer, Waterman, and Parker, whose reputation for high quality was known to collectors of writing instruments, there were many small pen companies that exhibited quality workmanship and individuality. While the familiar companies are included, this book will introduce more pens and pen makers, many of which will be unfamiliar to pen collectors.
A value guide is included, which offers the pen collector or trader a reference to determine comparative values of pens.
We hope you enjoy this new volume, and find it a useful, valued tool in your collecting life.
