Latest addition has been Hermann Schloss's "Distinguishing Characteristics of Classic Stamps: Old German States". The APS book store had 2 old used copies sitting there, I grabbed one. Seems to still hold a lot of perfectly useful information.

I just received Schmid's "The Expert's Book" in the mail. I'm hoping to finally learn the differences between the various Washington-Franklins.

re: "The Expert's Book" I can think of several people you can loan it to when you are finished.

No - easier just to send our stamps to Jack's Expertising Service.

The 1930 Gibbons Part 1 arrived yesterday. As it was published in September 1929 the introductory notes are quite bemusing.

Anyway, here's a pic of the old SGs

As I have a bit of a book collecting habit I look away when I come across early editions of SG catalogues in case I suddenly find I have a shelf of them. Digressing, I have to do the same when it comes to books with lovely covers - if I didn't suddenly we'd have twice as many books as we do now and we already have a couple of thousand!

But those catalogues look really tempting

I've just added these to my shelf. Hellas 2018 in 3 volumes, bilingual, full colour and specialised. Only 15euros plus postage from A.Karamitsos in Greece. Even if you don't collect or sell Greece, these will pay for themselves pretty quickly at this price

I've just bought a brand new 2015 copy of the Switzerland and Liechtenstein Zumstein catalog. A lot of interesting reading and very useful for mounting my used Switzerland collection.

Haven't read it, not sure I will lol. The owner of a used book store a couple blocks away, hangs on to any philatelic related books for me to check out.

Many thanks to SCF member YeaPolska for providing the eBay link to the latest addition to my philatelic library.. What a great resource! This 390 page self-published book is well organized and very comprehensive. Sample entries explain how symbols and dates are used. George K. Kay put an incredible amount of work into this book.

I picked up a copy of the Floyd Risvold auction catalog.

It is a 3-volume Hardbound, beautifully made set of catalogs by Spink-Shreves from 2010.

This was an amazing collection that truly combined American History with postal-history, maybe better than its ever been done before.

A couple recent additions to my library:

First, Günther Hass' Deutsche Postorte 1490-1920 (German Post Locations 1490-1920)



Second, this one's not a philatelic book, but it's useful for my ship post collection -- Charles Hocking's two-volume Dictionary of Disasters at Sea During the Age of Steam 1824-1962. It lists ship losses worldwide from 1824-1962.
