Download amendments with the latest additions
This publication is
designed to introduce the subject to collectors in a simplified way
while retaining the established approach to the classification
published previously (A. K. Huggins, British Postal Stationery, A
Priced Handbook of the Postal Stationery of Great Britain, Great
Britain Philatelic Society, 1970). The listings have been updated and
to facilitate identification each section includes the relevant stamps
and formats which are illustrated in colour.
This new listing of
British postal stationery covers all issues from 1840 to the present
day, including Post Office, Official and private items. It is
illustrated in colour throughout with the lists clearly set out in a
logical format so that collectors can easily identify items in their
possession. The 14 page introduction gives a definition of, and a brief
history of the development of postal stationery, with details of how
the listing has been constructed. In most cases prices are given
against items for mint and used condition, unless there are too few
items on the market for realistic prices to be given.
Size A4, hardback and
jacketed, 151 pp. Colour illustrations throughout. Published 2007.
book is now out of print and no further copies are available from
