I found these stamps, are they anything worth keeping? Thanks.

Depends on what you mean by worth keeping. If you are looking for a monetary gain, then no. If you are thinking of starting a worldwide stamp collection, then yes.

These are all very common low value stamps. If you found them in a library book, then I suggest you put them back. It is a common practice for some people to put unwanted or surplus stamps in a library book in order to get people interested in stamps.

I agree with PMStamp. 19 common stamps from 10 different countries. A very small start on a worldwide collection. If you don't want them, put them back so that they may find their intended recipient.

Well, it is a nice start to an elephant topical collection with the other stamps going back into the book.

It was a book that I purchased in an antique store. Thanks for the information, that is interesting.

The famous large block of the France Ceres 1 Fr vermilion was found in a book, so you can get lucky!
