With a Foreword by collectibles writer Don Fluckinger

Richard Binder is one of the world's foremost authorities on fountain pen history and repair techniques. In this companion book to his RichardsPens Guide to Fountain Pens, Volume 2: Restoration, he catalogs virtually every filling system he's encountered, encompassing most fountain pens from the late 1800s to the present.

This volume not only outlines the history of fountain pen filling systems from the early days to the 21st century, it also also gives in-depth directions on how to fill these classic pens yourself. Wonder how Grandma's lever-filler works? How about Great-Grandpa's Conklin Crescent? Even the ubiquitous Sheaffer Snorkel isn't at all obvious for folks unfamiliar with vintage pens. Like a friendly neighbor down the street, Richard gives you a step-by-step for all of them. It's like having a veteran fountain pen expert at your side.

Illustrated with patent drawings and never-before-seen pictures that explain the behind-the-scenes story of filling system development, this definitive text will serve generations to come, as fountain pens gain value on the antiques market and in collections around the world.
