EX LIBRIS NOTE: The bookplate is from Hiram Edmund Deats library .... (1870–1963), of Flemington, New Jersey, was a philatelist especially acclaimed for his collection of revenue stamps Deats formed one of the finest libraries of philatelic books and literature in the United States, which, in 1952, he donated to the Free Library of Philadelphia. This adds considerable value to the book.
