Peter Newland: "Philatelic Riddles is a nod to the postal service for their faithful recording of U. S. history and a lighthearted reminder of the people, places, and events that have touched our lives."
"Philatelic Riddles" is a volume of ten original riddles with 1969 commemorative U. S. postage stamp answers.
Introduction: "The stamps in Philatelic Riddles were obtained at a garage sale – someone's unfinished business. Each was issued in 1969 as a United States commemorative. They cover a wide range of topics and could prompt a desire for further research."
