Introductory letter from the stamp collection:

America's National Parks Commemorated On Official U.S. Stamp Issues

By 1872, America had come to realize that it was important that steps be taken to protect its outstanding landscapes and wild animals for future generation of Americans.

As a result, legislation was passed which established Yellowstone National Park as America's first National Park - an area to be owned and enjoyed by all Americans.

Since that time, Congress has aside over 225 areas ambracing more than 25,000,000 acres of land to be permanently protected through the National Parks Service for the benefit of all U.S. citizens.

Within our National Parks are some of the most dramatic scenery and awe-inspiring workings of nature known to man. It is therefore fitting that the United States honor America's National Parks - one of our country's most outstainding resources - through the issuance of commemorative stamps.

In U.S. postal history, there have been two commemorative stamps series dedicated to America's National Parks - the 1934 10-stamp issue and the 1972 5-stamp issue honoring the centennial anniversary of America's National Parks. America's foremost stamp designers were called upon to develop those 15 magnificent stamps as it only fitting for a project of such national significance. As a result, America's National Parks Stamps have become among the most highly sought-after stamps ever issued by the United States.

These 15 magnificent National Parks stamps have been assembled by the Postal Commemorative Society in this outstanding collection. To highlight each stamp, the Society selected from the archives of government libraries, as well as the collections of America's foremost photographers - the one photograph which most perfectly complements the mint-condition National Parks stamp.

The selected photographs were then reproduced to exacting standards on luxurious quintescence paper to form the impressive National Parks display panel on which the mint-condition National Parks stamp is presented.

We are sure that this collection will be a treasured
family heirloom for you, your children and grandchildren for many years to come.

W.J. Strausser - Director of the Postal Commemorative Society.
