The 2021 Scott Standard Postage Stamp Catalogue lists the following (mostly) unrelated stamps as being contained in a "complete booklet" (Gibbons numbers are noted in parentheses after each Scott item with general stamp name in brackets):

1. 2367a - Booklet pane, #2366-2367 (2519, 2520) [1st Australian Coin stamps]
2. 2374a - Booklet pane, #2369-2370, 2373-2374, + 4 labels (2502-2503, 2506-2507) [UNESCO World Heritage Sites stamps]
3. 2376b - Booklet pane, #2371-2372, 2375-2376, + 4 labels (2504-2505, 2508-2509) [UNESCO World Heritage Sites stamps]
4. 2382b - Booklet pane, #2377-2382 (2510-2515 [Creatures of the Slime stamps]
5. 2384a - Booklet Pane of 1, #2382b (2518) [Rotary International Centenary stamp]

There is no date of issue, so it is presumed to be the same as the individual stamps - April 21, 2005. I cannot find a listing of this "booklet" in the Gibbons catalogue, Pfeffer & Crum nor in any dealer listings.

Anyone have any information on this?

Thanks rod222. I went thru the bulletin on-line and did not see anything that included a "Complete Booklet" containing all of the items.

There were some individual panes but not a booklet.

Rotary Booklet identified here
https://www.australianstrampcatalogue.com/2005.php

What you may need is later editions of the Bulletin
say #280 or #281
see if they are highlighted at the back of the Bulletins
where sales are listed.

Not sure where my Bulletins are, but they are dashed heavy boxes

My digital bulletins start at #292

I have a smattering of earlies including Issue #1
but none of 2005

No mention of a "Complete Booklet" in Bulletin 280 or 281.

Appears that the "Variations" catalogue has more exlusions than inclusions.

I believe what kandyman is talking about are the AP Stamp packs issued for these stamps. They are folders more than booklets, with more information about the subject of the stamps (and just another way for AP to dig money out of collectors). They are all shown in the Stamp Bulletin.

Here is the one for the Creatures of the Slime:

Thanks 22crows. I suspected something along the panel/pane format. Selective inclusion in their listings as there are many others like this, I'm sure, that are not in the catalogue.

Just another item to add to the Scott Catalogue list of questions/stuff that they will never answer.

Your expectations may too high. To defend Scott, they are not all-knowing (especially about non-US issues) and they are not producing a specialized-level catalog for the rest of the world. That is the task for the home-country publishers, Michel for Germany, Stanley Gibbons for UK, etc.

That said, when I wanted something corrected and rearranged, I supplied Scott with a detailed description of what I believed the correct listing should be with references so reduce their required effort to confirm my suggestions (i.e. proof). It appeared in the next edition as I suggested.

I had an inkling, this was the case, after Googling / fanoogaling.
Nice to have it confirmed.

Amen
I am ashamed my country stoops to this regime.
We had a proud philatelic history until this garbage.

If you have found *.pdf's of the above,
I'd be delighted if you can pass on any links, so I can download
to my database.

Dashed if I could find them.

rod222 - I now can't seem to get back to them now. As I recall they were read only or download for a fee. I believe the site was yumpa.com.
