Scripophily: Art of Finance
Scripophily draws collectors because of the themed, dramatic art and historical representation each old
bond or stock certificate holds. The mostly defunct, but sometimes live, original documents portray
great historic themes of discovery, new technology, and financial institutions. Now back in print,
this edition offers essential hobby background information, an overview of main collecting themes by
country and subject, and advice on building, maintaining, valuing, and selling a collection.
