Introduction to the Large Hermes Heads of Greece 1861-1886
by Constantin Mattheos FRPSL

This new book from the Royal Philatelic Society London provides an up to date English language guide to some of the most beautiful classic stamps of the world, the first issues of Greece. From plates made in Paris in 1861, they were used for the next 25 years, with different levels of skill to print nine values. The challenge to the collector is to sort out the sequence of printings. Some are relatively easy and others require experience. This book will assist through its descriptions of the colours, the quality of printing, the papers and other
distinguishing features, reinforced by accurate colour illustrations of the printings. It also puts the stamps into the context of the postal system by offering details of some of the main postage rates that apply at various times during the period.

The book has a retail price of £39. Members can order copies for £35 (Plus postage)

Orders can be made either by telephone, email, or by direct online purchase from the Publication page on this website.
