Hi peterethio

Apparently stamp books rarely come in, it seems philatelists keep all their literature, and it usually from a deceased estate, or should I say when the collector has gone to the big stamp album in the sky.

That was great Horamkhet

Seldom does one come across book on philately in shops like that. It is also rare to even find a specialty stamp book in a new or used book store as well

Collectors items by themselves for sure.

Horamkhet, very true. All the thrift shops I've been to never have books like that. I have to buy them from Biblio.com.

That Local Stamps of Australia book looks particularly intriguing.

Horamkhet, congratulations and a great find. I check second hand book stores from time to time and never find great books like you discovered.

Hi smuggie

I will post some pages of the Local stamps of Australia on the weekend.
It has some interesting obscure information that could send you off into a tangent of collecting.

There will probably be many interested in it, Horamakhet. We will wait patiently but expectantly.

Hi to all and especially smauggie

Here are some of the pages from the "Local Stamps of Australia. I have also included the contents pages.
It is a truly fascinating book. I will really enjoy reading it. It certainly opens a new field of collecting.
I have never seen a copy of it before.
