The purpose of this book is to act as a Supplement to the outstanding handbook on St. Vincent philately, St. Vincent, by Pierce, Messenger and Lowe published by Robson Lowe Ltd. in 1971 (PML). While comprehensive in its coverage, this book did not include stamps and revenue stamps after 1897 while the coverage of the Postal History and cancellations only went up to 1915. The present volume extends into the 20th century and adds a couple of missing sections.

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

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!

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.
£20.00


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