For the historian in all of us.....I am sure some member on here has a First Edition of the first Scott's album from 187x?, but I'll try to post a couple of representative photos tomorrow from the 1897 Scott International and 1893 MeKeel albums I just purchased. I guess they would have put you in the major leagues if you were a young collector in the last decade of the 19th century. Back then, given some disposable income in the family, you had a real shot at collecting 90% of all the stamps that had been issued! John

She is no beauty cover-wise, but this the 1893 Mekeel's Worldwide album. What album today would devote such space to postal stationery of the Columbian states and Hanover?

The 1897 International Album...I thought this was the Scott version, actually it is another Mekeel. Anyone have that first GB postal envelope?

Referred to as the "Mulready"

Note: These Mulreadys were copied for US covers, keep an eye out for them.

Here is the first die, in boxwood.



Here is the cover on the opposite page...
