This was an age of innocence, before governments and postal administrations discovered that money could be made from the sale of stamps to collectors, and so the classics are virtually free of the manipulation and abuses to which more recent stamps have been subject. The classics include the world's greatest rarities, such as the British Guiana One Cent of 1856, sold in 1970 for £280,000.

The publisher's blurb reads: ''Psychoanalysis: science or belief system?
