GLEADALL Mary The Tudway Letters.
GLEADALL Mary The Tudway Letters.

B.W.I.S.C. (2016)
x + 266 large pp. 1st ed., new in card covers.
This book concerns the Tudway family’s correspondence from 1751 to 1858. Over 1,400 covers were discovered and this work by Mary Gleadall examines the history of the family, the history of their employees in the West Indies and the correspondence emanating from that relationship. Mary’s dedicated researches into the old families of Antigua and Barbados over an extended period and her persistence in getting deep into the social history and political events that allowed the plantations of this period to flourish is breathtaking. It comprises a serious and thorough record of the contents of the hundreds of letters that reflect the concerns and challenges facing the writers, problems with weather, crop fertility and difficulties in managing the workforce. A very thought-provoking book which goes beyond pure philately and should be valued by all interested in the West Indies.

FREELAND Charles and JORDAN John M. Antigua. The stamps and postal history.

B.W.I.S.C. (2016)
x + 299 large pp. 1st ed., new in D/W.
Coming so early in the alphabet Antigua has always been one of the most popular of the small Caribbean islands. It has an interesting mix of early stamps printed by Perkins Bacon and De La Rue including a number of rarities. On the postal history front Antigua is especially well endowed, with the Codrington and Tudway estate correspondences. There is also a rich variety of early postal markings, including some unique marks. The original inspiration for this book was the Antigua Monograph published in successive issues of the British Caribbean Philatelic Journal over a 15 year period between 1973 and 1988. This book collates all this information, updates it and presents it in a most readable form.
