Anyone have a copy of these books or had a chance to check them out?

ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE COLORS OF UNITED STATES POSTAGE STAMPS BY R.H. WHITE"

Was wondering if they are useful.

Hmmm, I wonder if the foundation in NYC has a set?
Is it technical stuff about the printing process or more an illustrated guide?
Or both and more?

And a rhetorical question.....why the heck is it out of print???

The Library of Congress in DC has a copy. I've been meaning to go into town and copy the illustrated plates, but haven't had the time. I wonder if the APS library has a copy?

For me the attraction are the plates which illustrate the color variations. I never even thought about what the text would cover.

The APS union catalog shows holdings by the APRL, Collectors Club of Chicago, Rocky Mountain Philatelic Library, and the Postal History Foundation. I would pretty low odds on any of them lending it, though.

It's possable that the Foundation, if they have a copy, may let me spend some time with it on site.

There is a new philatelic library in St. Paul, Minnesota. You would be suprised at what they have. I will be there Saturday and I will check on this. It is very unlikely that they would allow it to be checked out. If you have any business in Minnesota it's worth checking out.

I was interested and just purchased a set sold on eBay which included (4) volumes, plus a paper and gum volume. $400 for the set. I'm looking forward to receiving it.

Partime, awesome!!
Would love that set.

My "hobby" money is going into a custom paint job on my steel framed bicycle this spring.
So any new stamp related stuff is strictly stampcrow this year.

I think that Phil Bansner has them for sale too on his online philatelic literature website.

I have all six volumes and find them very useful when evaluating shades and colors.
Volumes I and II are 1847-1868 and 1869 - 1893.
Volumes III and IV are 1894 - 1907 and 1908 - 1918.
Volume V Postage Due Issues 1879 - 1916.
The last volume is The Papers and Gums of United States Postage Stamps 1847 - 1909, this volume includes a glass slid with four paper samples, National, Continental, American Bank Notes and Bureau Issues.

Well, bummer. I can't find any glass slide in my "Papers and Gums" volume. Maybe that is why the price was so good.

Are these hardbound editions or loose leaf?
If loose leaf, were there hardboud editions printed?
