Don,
Also... you have a typo in your "First Phono message" page, you might want to fix. You have "person;s" voice, and try reaching one key to right to get "person's" instead. ;)

It is not a reproduction. The buffalo is chasing the Indian. It is humor.

So it's a humorous modern reproduction. It's still a modern reproduction. Just like the fake C3a with the pilot falling out of the plane.

Reading my "Chronicle of the 20th Century"

February 1900, the world's first "book of stamps" produced (U.S)

What "book of stamps" means actually, is not explained.
Any idea from our US friends?

The reference is to the first US booklet stamps, released in 1900.

Luxembourg appears to have been the first country to issue postage stamp booklets.

"Booklets of telegraph stamps are known to have been issued by the California State Telegraph Company in 1870, and by Western Union in 1871, and on 14 October 1884 an A.W. Cooke of Boston received Patent 306,674 from the United States Patent Office for the idea of putting postage stamps into booklets.

Luxembourg was the first country to issue booklets, in 1895, followed by Sweden in 1898, the United States in 1900 and Great Britain in 1904." Wikipedia

Aha!
Thank you both, that makes sense, my references are newspaper articles,
ergo, reporters are not philatelists.

The article possibly was a report from the US, which at the time was true, for that country, but not the world.

When I was 10 or 11, I bought what was hawked as the first 'steel stamp set', from Bhutan. Not the first metal stamp - 'gold' foil stamps already existed.

Correct me if I am wrong.
