Couple of things to note if you are purchasing a stockbook. First off the size of the book. They do come in different dimensions so make note of that. I have here some that are 6 1/2 x 9 and some that are 9x12.
Another thing to note is whether or not it has glassine interleaving pages to help protect the stamps. Some stockbooks don't have these pages, some stockbooks have one between pages and some books even have two between each page.
Some other variations:
You can also get stockbooks with white or black pages. I generally like the black pages better. You can also get stockbooks with alligator skin covers and slipcovers both of which are more of a premium and very nice.

I love stockbooks. They are perfect for my topical collections:
These two pictures show my stock book for Castle Stamps. I also have stockbooks for Telescope and astronomy stamps and Knights.
