Crikey! That'll take some reading and take up some shelf space too. I'm culling some of the magazines I've got as our new house is a good deal smaller than the one we used to have!

Wow!! I have inherited my father's philatelic literature collection to add to my own and probably have 200+ books but still not a quarter of the ones that have been shown.
I used to work in the history department of Foyle's Bookshop on Charing Cross Road, London. My colleague and I established a weekly competition and the winner was proudly placed in the stand for "Obscure Book Title of the Week". We would never have run out of titles if we had included philately!
When the baby wakes up I will reach the bookshelf behind to photograph my two favourites and add them on.

My library is extensive. It would take days, literally, to list everything in it. Here's a few items to give you an idea...

American Philatelic Congress (1935-2017 - missing only 4 volumes)
American Philatelist (1950-present - missing two issues)
Scott U.S. Specialized Catalogues (1998-2018, with other from 1868 up)
R.L. White's Color Guides for U.S. Stamps
R.L. White's Paper and Gums of U.S. Stamps
Max Johl's four volume set of U.S. Stamps of the 20th Century
Brookman 3 volume
Travers Papers
Multiple books on cancellations including Cole, Skinner, Weiss and Simpson
First edition Proofs and Essays signed by Brazer

Basically, if it is about U.S. stamps of any kind, I've got something in my library. It fills six plus bookcases.
