Literature: World: Worldwide  
These gently used books and catalogs are a great way to build your philatelic knowledge and library. All items are used and in at least "good" condition unless otherwise mentioned. I am constantly purchasing philatelic libraries, thus if there is anything you are seeking, please let me know. I guarantee your satisfaction.

Due to the low prices, variations in weight, and different mailing methods, distances, and destinations, shipping cost is additional for items in the Specials Literature listings unless otherwise mentioned. When ordering please include a note in the shopping cart comments section indicating if you prefer faster/costlier or slower/cheaper delivery so that I may more quickly quote the shipping costs and options for you.

Each item is usually one of a kind; orders will be filled in order of receipt. Payment by MasterCard or Visa suggested, but I will hold items for 10 days pending receipt of check if you prefer.

Illustrations of books in the Specials section may show representative images and not the exact item. If you hover your mouse pointer over a picture, you should see a small message box stating if the image is representative or of the exact item.

MonacoPhil 2004 Exhibition Catalog: The exhibition "catalog" for MonacoPhil 2004 stamp show, an extravaganza of philatelic rarities. The term "catalog" is quite misleading. This is a incredible book of 192 pages, large format, full color, velvet-covered hardbound volume picturing many of the world philatelic rarities in full color. The book originally included a rare Slania-engraved souvenir card which is offered separately for $135! This book itself is equally rare, but nowhere near as costly, though it must have cost $100 each to produce! I offer the book separately as not all Slania collectors may want a copy of the book or pay shipping for it. Interestingly, the book includes an Ultramarine and Red (instead of Black and Red) picture of the rare souvenir card.

The World Encyclopedia of Stamps and Stamp Collecting: (Mackay, 2017) This is a BRAND-NEW looking copy of a very modern book. Though it has a very reasonable original retail price of $10.99, this is a hardbound, full color, 256-page book absolutely crammed with useful information and illustrations. As the title suggests, this takes an encyclopedic approach, but is extremely readable. Mackay is an excellent author for such a book and this would be very useful to virtually any collector at any stage or level of collecting. This 7x9 inch format is basically the same book as another "complete guide" by Mackay.

The Complete Guide to Stamps and Stamp Collecting: (Mackay, 2017) This is a BRAND-NEW looking (but has a "hidden" dent in the front cover) copy of a very modern book. Though it has a very reasonable original retail price of $14.99, this is a softbound, full color, 256-page book absolutely crammed with useful information and illustrations. Though the title suggests that this is different from the Mackay Encyclopedia, this is essentially the same book that takes an encyclopedic approach, but is extremely readable. Mackay is an excellent author for such a book and this would be very useful to virtually any collector at any stage or level of collecting. This 9x11.75 inch format is basically the same book as another "encyclopedia" by Mackay -- it is just larger format with larger text and pictures (better for older eyes).

[Brazil] Correio Aereo: A History of the Development of Air Mail Service in Brazil: (Kriebel, 1996) This generously illustrated monograph traces the airlines and early airmail services into and out of Brazil. Featured are chapters on airlines like Varig, Condor, NYRBA, Aeropostale, LATI, and Pan Am. Included are many reproductions of airmail stamps and covers, as well as historical tables, maps, labels, and other Brazilian airmail material. If you just enjoy airmail postal history you will very much like this, but if you have an interest in Brazil or generally South American postal history, this is a must-have reference! 205 pages. Softbound. Appears to be absolutely new condition.

Book: The Imperial Postage Stamp Album, and Catalog... - Primary Source Edition: I was not previously aware of this publication. It is a reproduction, as a softbound book, of the 1874 Gibbons album. It is considered historically important as it helps to document the state of philately in those early years. It is very interesting to see what they knew had been issued and what they did not yet know about! Near-new condition, with just a couple minor bends on the cover.

Stamps and Postal History of Lundy Island, Fifth Edition: (Aitchison, 2009) The specialized, must-have catalog for anybody interested in the stamps, postal history, cancellations, etc. of Lundy Island (located in the Bristol Channel, on the west side of the England). Starting with the first stamp issues in 1929, and the postal history of the island long before that, this 237-page priced catalog and handbook is absolutely necessary for anybody wanting to learn more about this fascinating chapter of philately. There is a Sixth Edition, released in 2019 I believe, which sells for about $50 plus shipping from the UK, but this Fifth Edition will surely satisfy the needs of most people. This appears to be brand new; the binding has never been "cracked" open.

The Philatelic Exhibitors Handbook, Third Edition: (Neil, Prill; 2006) I thought that this was not the latest edition of this valuable handbook, but I have not been able to find a later edition and it seems that this edition is hard to obtain??? You will find so much tremendously useful information about stamp exhibiting and preparing your collection for display or exhibit, that this book will "hook" you. It is said that to really learn a subject you need to teach the subject. That is what stamp exhibiting really does -- in the process of sharing your subject with others, you learn tremendously more about it yourself! Even if you just want to get some ideas about making attractive album pages for your own personal use, you will find this book a goldmine of ideas. Plastic coil (the good kind) binding for lay-flat use. I found one source for new copies at $32; this is very gently used; excellent condition.
