In my continued quest to acquire as complete a set of world revenue stamp catalogues as I can, I've been unable to locate (via google and other resources at my disposal) any catalogues for a small number of countries. Lately I've been seeking catalogues for Columbia, Venezuela, and Paraguay - but I've been unable to find anything.

I know that veteran revenue philatelists like Jim Ross and Clive Akerman have published works for Central/South American countries' revenue stamps, but I cannot find anything by them or anyone else. Does anyone know if these countries have revenue catalogues? They don't have to be in English... it surprises me that I can't find anything for Venezuela in particular, because their fiscal stamps are so prevalent. I've seen examples of revenue stamps from all these countries on Eric Jackson's website, and so I know they exist. I do have some in my collection, including some nice ABNCo cigar stamps from Santander (Colombia).

Also wondering about Haiti and Dominican Republic.

Thanks in advance for any leads/information. I have collected stamps since I was three years old, but a serious interest in foreign revenue stamps didn't take root until last summer... better late than never!

Hi Barry

First of all the country is COlombia.

Check with the APRL (American Philatelic Research Library). I believe there were a couple of books on Colombia Revenues. I did find the author's name for one book: Alan D. Anyon. However, I cannot get any of the links to work. He published it with Dieter Bortfeld.

Also check with Eric Jackson (Revenue Stamps). He might know of catalogs.

For Haiti, a query to the Haiti Philatelic Society https://www.haitiphilately.org/index.html is probably the best way to find revenue resources.

More generally, the individual who runs https://classiclatinamerica.com/ may know of some publications - although they don't list much in revenues in their resources section.

Handbook of Colombia Revenues. Alan D Anyon. 2009.

Believe available via APRL.

No current listing on eBay, Amazon, or Eric Jackson.

Bcantin.

In your initial posting, did you intend to reference the late Joe Ross? Renown revenue philatelist.

"First of all the country is COlombia."

Or in my mishap, ColOmbia. Heh, I actually knew that... I'm usually the one correcting these misspellings myself... I would blame it on my tiny iPhone keyboard, but it was probably just old age starting to set in...

I'll take your advice, Jerry, and investigate that. Thank you! I rarely take advantage of my membership.

Hey Calstamp! Yep, Joe Ross was my intended subject. I didn't know he had passed away, though; I have a few of his works and they are really well done. I'm very sorry to hear he has left us. His excellent contributions to philately will live on...

Thanks for the links, everyone - I had found the Anyon catalogue after I posted this, but as Calstamp pointed out, it is nowhere to be found right now. But I'll just stay on it and eventually one might turn up.

Thanks to the link on youtube - I'll watch that one later tonight. My Spanish is a little rusty right now (I've been working on my Japanese so diligently the past few years I am starting to get the two mixed up sometimes... very odd, I know) but I could understand most of what he was saying. Interesting that Anyon was mentioned in there as well - I will definitely seek out his work.

The Haiti link led to a nice online catalogue for Haitian revenues! That will be an interesting read, I really appreciate that.

Thanks everyone! I'm surprised nobody mentioned Venezuela; they have quite a few fairly common fiscal issues, and I believe some of them were printed by ABNCo. Same for Paraguay. Very interesting. Does anyone here collect revenues from Latin America?

Hi Bcantin

For Venezuela revenues, contact the Venezuela Stamp Society ASOFILCA (Asociacion Filatelica De Caracas) https://www.asofilca.com/

Someone should know of any Revenue catalogs.

In general, contact the various Philatelic Societies in Latin America.
For a listing of the Societies:
