The material was provided to public auction in February (Part 1), March (Part 2) and April (Part 3), 1946. Harmer included in the auction catalogue a reproduced letter from President Harry Truman in which Truman wrote of the impact of stamp collecting to bring the world together and its influence on President Roosevelt from early childhood.

Many philatelic reference books are collectible in their own right since many renouned hobby experts are now out of print. Most are valued for their collectibility based on condition, rarity, and to some extent their use as a reference. Condition is the key and is highly subjective, so study the images, read the content, ask questions, and work with a reliable collector-dealer to get what you want.
