The 1965 United States Dante Stamp explores in detail the background, production, and issuance of the country's commemorative postage stamp honoring Italian poet Dante Alighieri on the septicentennial of his birth. The author's extensive research using government documents, archival resources, and specialist literature provides a complete and illuminating narrative of the stamp's history.
Profusely illustrated in color, the volume includes a gallery of first day covers, a sample cover, and a sample plate block from the stamp issue.
