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.

FERNBANK Peter (Ed.) Bahamas – Stamps and Postal Stationery to 1970

B.W.I.S.C. & R.P.S. (2017)
xii + 344 large pp. 1st ed., new in D/W.
Collectors of Bahamas have long awaited a successor to Harold G. D. Gisburn’s slim handbook of 1950 in which he briefly touched on most aspects of Bahamas philately. Since then many of the philatelic disciplines within Bahamas have benefitted from scholarly and detailed publications but stamps and postal stationery have remained substantially neglected. This book, a joint project between the Royal Philatelic Society London and the BWISC, attempts to remedy this situation. Each series of stamps is examined in detail, from its inception and development through to its issue and eventual demise. The various archive items that exist in both private and public domains are examined and listed, including artists’ essays, die and plate proofs, colour trials and Specimens, etc.
