That's a shame. I'd assumed that there would be a US stockist selling on US Amazon or US eBay. Maury's catalogues are lovely things, filled with images of stamps that I'll never own, but enjoy looking at.


I agree Geoff. What I've seen/heard about the Maury has been nothing short of fantastic, and it's been on my list for a couple of years. I have been relying on my 2010 Y&T, which I had purchased new for something like US$20.

You can always find someone who sells many of the "foreign" catalogs new here, but as they usually cater to specialists, they aren't cheap. I do purchase an above average amount of philatelic references, but the costs are such that I pretty much have to wait until I find a heavily discounted price. Every once in a while, someone here in the US will sell some imported catalogs for a total price very close to or even below discounted prices in the home country of publication. Then I'll snap it up. Otherwise I end up buying a used older edition. Sometimes someone overseas (not necessarily a stamp dealer) will be clearing out a stock they acquired at a great price (and yes, they discount the overseas shipping -- sometimes even free)!

US$20 for a 2016 Maury definitely meets my "cheapskate" price!

Thanks for pointing that out area66! I was wondering if one was available and hadn't gotten around to searching. You've saved me a lot of hunting. I'll look into it!

The Maury "Timbres de France" catalogue is now published by Spink, the London-based dealer and auctioneer.

The 2017 edition is hardback and is priced at 24.90.

Thanks, Nigel! At the Spinks website, it's 22.50, and they toss in a free La Collection La Fayette by Chauvin (30 value)! That's an amazing price for a quality catalog that is 1000+ pages hardback.

However, they have a bug on their website and they are charging me 0 for both books! And unfortunately, shipping is 20 to the US! I got as far as the confirmation page with a total charge of 20. Of course 20 for both books is a great deal, but I don't to take advantage of the bug in their software.

I'm sure they'd catch the problem, but I didn't confirm the order. The correct cost of the book with shipping is a bit too steep compared to getting the 2016 Kindle version.

Well, I tried to email them to let them know of the shopping cart bug, but apparently the email address on their contact page is wrong. Quite surprised such a large established operation would have so many basic website problems.

I don't think it's a bug ; on Spink, you can but other books in the basket and it work, the problem is related to the The Maury, they probably just forget to enter something

Nice Edw_kim! The key to both sets is the 10fr of the Supplemental Issue. I also just realized I had the 10cm and 10fr stamps interchanged on my album page. Guess I'm getting older much faster than I thought!

I just check, and I don't have the 10F of 1944, I checked on eBay and as usual I end purchasing a full set. Anyway MNH at $ 8 , I don't think it's a bad deal

Ed don't take it bad, my comment was like a question, first thing that jump on my eyes was the page with the edge cut

Are they the same cover ? I don't think so... the bottom is address to the Red Cross POW division in Geneva with 1944 stamps and the top one have a Red Cross slogan with 1945 stamps , but the cancel are from different post office

EDIT ; oups I miss the word couple ..... lol

Ed , what Scott album is that, with Scott numbers, I guess a US speciality. National.... But I don't think they have France occuation stamps in it ...??????

EDIT : what an epic fail, I'm getting old, the BB ( international) do list scott # for the US section.

my BB look like this one, well on the other side of the page since it's the last edition ( something 199x) . the one on the pic should be 196x something edition

So what is that page ? , an older edition of BB that was listing those stamps in US ?
