United States/BOB & Other : List of US Revenue Literature

24 Feb 2014
I have been asked by several members to post a Revenue Literature List. So, Here it is. Some of these are insanely difficult to find. Others are in your local library. I do have most of the titles listed. If you need direction for a particular type of Revenue Stamp, Just let me know. I will do my best to help. This list is by no means complete and does Not cover all areas. So, please don't tell me I'm missing Stamped Paper, Embossed Revenues, etc. I already know. But, you are welcome to go right ahead and add it to this post!

If you are just starting out You MUST get the following.
Introduction to United States Revenue Stamps, 1994, By Richard Friedberg (who also happens to be a super nice guy as well!)
This is a MUST for the beginning Revenue Collector. It will answer many questions. As well as saving you a lot of grief and money!

I also should have noted that a few of these books are available free on line. You can try Google, Open Library (a great resource if you have never used it) or Archive.Org.
It should also be mentioned that very often a book that is not available on Google.COM might be available on .de or CO.UK or another Google site. It's worth looking.
