Showing items in West Indies Books - Grenada

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

The small guide book on Grenada by Kay is worth having and the large dossier of documents on the prelude to the U.S. invasion of the island makes incredible reading.  There is a good website done by a customer of mine on the revolution which I can recommend.  Go to:- http://www.thegrenadarevolutiononline.com

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.

CAPON Richard and GIBB Bill & STEWART George The Farthing BWISC 2021 102pp. 1st ed., new in card covers. The humble farthing, which not that many people will remember, was the cost of posting Printed Papers locally in some colonies of the Empire. Most were in the West Indies. This book catalogues all of these stamps and shows some very uncommon uses. The coverage extends outside the West Indies to Malta in particular and also to Fiji. There are instances where farthing stamps/labels were used as revenues in Australia, South Africa and diverse places, such as Heligoland. There are listed examples of the farthing labels used in the Highland Railways of Scotland. Places where farthing stamps were used are all covered and as a special treat there is an appendix showing some rare uses from the Ronald Rong Collection
