Books on philately for sale.  I mostly stock out of print titles but act as agent for the British West Indies Study Circle and the British Caribbean Study Group.

Post and packing is extra.  Please note that for bulky (2kg +) overseas orders I can offer very cheap airmail postage as I have a contract with Royal Mail which makes the cost little more than for inland orders.

HORRY David The Riddle of the ‘Registered’ Ovals of Jamaica and Trinidad 1949  –  1962
HORRY David The Riddle of the ‘Registered’ Ovals of Jamaica and Trinidad 1949  –  1962

B.W.I.S.C. (2017)
xxii + 224 large pp. 1st ed., new in card covers.
In March 2015 David Horry won a Julian Chapman Scholarship, via The Royal Philatelic Society London to travel to Jamaica and try to get to the bottom of this fascinating mystery. What he has discovered may change the way we view the use of the Colonial mails in a period before telephone tapping and hacking became the norm. The Cold War was warming up, just as the sun was slowly setting on the British Empire: and the so-called ‘Registered’ Ovals started their intriguing life as instruments of surveillance!
