Gold fever

By Kenneth J. Kutz. Darien, Conn: Gold Fever Publishing, c1987.

Author of eight books in the National Postal Museum Library alone (including Gold Fever, California Gold, Black Gold, Klondike Gold, and Victoria Gold) Kenneth Kutz is a gold enthusiast. This 400-page book tells the history of gold prospecting around the world and the effect it had on early explorers, settlement, and colonization. Gold incites both romance and excitement, not just in California, but all over the world. This volume is illustrated in color with 609 postage stamps and covers (envelopes), and weaves in tales of postal history and its relation to stories of gold discovery. This book was published 30 years ago, and it is still relevant to the field of philately, for both amateurs and professionals.
