The Stamps of Great Britain 2 Volumes

£16.99

Product description

A two volume set produced by the Royal Philatelic Society. Volume I has the sub-title The Line-Engraved Issues 1840 to 1853 while the second volume has the subtitle "Addenda and Corrigenda to Part I, the remainder of the Line-engraved issues, the embossed adhesive and surface printed issue up to 1865". There is a mass of factual data about the stamps produced over the period.

Royal Philatelic Society hardbacks with no DJs. The first volume has a very poor front hinge which requires urgent attention and the adjacent end page is in need of tipping back in. However the remainder of the volume is intact and with no marks and the text block is in good order. The second volume is in much better order with only some lifting off of the paper on the backing of the upper rear cover.

In all a nice pair of volumes with all the detail and data you could wish for and many line illustrations.
