Perkins Bacon Great Britain Line-Engraved Postage Stamp Printing 1840 to 1846 (Ordinary Bound 2 Volumes)

Alan Druce FRPSL
£125.00

View

After five years of meticulous research in archives, this definitive book is now ready for publication. As well as the Perkins Bacon Records and the Postal Museum, many hours have been spent looking at primary sources in the British Library, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the National Archives at Kew. The information gleaned has been meticulously analysed and the full story told in more detail than ever before. The work is in two hard-bound volumes, each of 624 pages. It is Volume 2 that will be heavily used by aficionados of GB Line-Engraved stamps as it contains tables that define precisely how many sheets were printed from which plate by which printer on which day. These volumes give philatelists a previously un-published level of detail of the first six years of stamp production.
It is anticipated that they will be available in Sep 2018.

The Paper Trail: World War II in Holland and its Colonies as Seen through Mail and Documents

Kees Adema & Jeffrey Groeneveld
£70.00
In stock
View

The Paper Trail tells the story of the postal history of Holland and its colonies during World War 2 in a fresh and compelling way. The book weaves together the evidence of mail and other documents – letters, cards, diaries, cards, photographs, personal memorabilia and the like – into a distinctive narrative. The focus is on the lives and experiences of ordinary people, individually and collectively, and the impact upon them of occupation, unprovoked and accidental bombing, famine (at times), and in many cases persecution, forcible removal and, at worst, extermination in the concentration camps. A myriad of correspondence has been unearthed from family records and, through this book, brought to a wider public for the first time.

Baghdad in British Occupation: The Story of the 1917 Provisional Stamps

Freddy Khalastchy FRPSL (January 2017)
£50.00
In stock
View

The “BAGHDAD IN BRITISH OCCUPATION” stamps have always been desired by collectors of Iraq and British Colonies both because they were the first stamps issued in Iraq and also as a significant issue of World War 1. Since quantities printed were relatively small and all the values were exhausted from the Baghdad Post Office just seventeen days after they were put on sale, they fetched high prices from the very beginning. This book explains why and how the stamps were issued, and presents a full record of all known errors and covers as a reference for future collectors.
