In the 1950s-1970s, Minkus sold two well regarded worldwide albums for more advanced collectors. One was the Master Global that was somewhat less comprehensive than the Blue Scott Internationals; the other was the Supreme Global which had more spaces than the International. While the base volume of the Master Global was available sporadically until a few years ago, I can't remember the last time the Supreme Global was being sold new.
According to Amos Publishing which bought the rights to Minkus products in 2004, pages for the Minkus "Global" album from 1840-1952 are again available "on demand." In response to an email, Amos' Customer Service writes that the 1840-1952 parts are for the Supreme Global, not the Master Global. And the pages will be printed on 80-lb stock (as opposed to 60-lb for the Scott International and who knows what lesser weight for the originals).
In spite of this email, I do worry a little because everything I've seen suggests that the Supreme Global wasn't published until 1954. The Master Global on the other hand does date from 1952. But there certainly is confusion about the exact history of these albums, so I could easily be wrong.
If these are indeed the Supreme Global pages, this is great news for worldwide collectors. The Supreme Global represents what IMO is a good compromise between the coverage in the Blue Internationals and the Brown Internationals. You have most of the stamps that a collector can readily acquire without those unfillable spaces for the great rarities. You also have the convenience of the pages fitting in 2-3 binders versus 8-10 for the Vintage Reproductions of the Browns (plus additional binders if you go past 1940).
You can see the advertisement for these newly available Minkus pages in the latest Linn's.
Jerry, I haven't seen the reprints either, but I doubt that Amos Publishing has done any updating. That is, the cuts, descriptions, and numbering are most likely reproduced "as is" from the original edition. The earliest versions of the Master and Supreme Globals did not have even Minkus numbers (except perhaps for the US section) so I bet that is the case with the Amos reprints.
