Leonard H. Hartmann of the Philatelic Bibliopole has acquired many of the stamp-related titles from Quarterman Publications, and has begun offering them for sale. Several titles do have a connection to banknote printing. Others are just plain interesting for their content on colonial, U.S., gold rush and Confederate history. The following is taken from an email. Check with Hartmann for price and availability.
Al Hoch formed Quarterman Publications in the early 1970's; intending to reprint books of lasting value; decent paper and binding with good printing at reasonable prices. He obtained excellent advice and without exception everything he reprinted was a work of enduring value, even today!.
We stocked his philatelic books from day one and as Al's health declined in recent years we bought all of some that remained. Al died on Thanksgiving day, 2010, we have acquired a stock of items found in his warehouse, some were previously thought to be sold out but two to seven of some were found.
All that knew Al have kind memories. On two occasions Al reduced the price of two books; he asked us how many we had in stock and refunded the difference!
We intend to eventually list all of Al's philatelic publications including some that are long out of print.
Here are just a few titles that caught my eye.
