Showing items in West Indies Books - Bahamas

Below is a list of my stock of old secondhand and antiquarian books on Bahamas for sale.

There are a number of early guide books on the Bahamas which I could recommend.  Mary Mosely's Bahamas hand book of 1926 is not uncommon and makes a good starting point for a collection.  There are few early works on the Out Islands.

Postage and packing is extra but costs are kept to a minimum.  On overseas orders I can offer cheap shipping per airmail M Bag service where total weight is over 1.5kg (3lbs) Cost will be advised after you have submitted your order and before payment is taken.

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.
