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.

Linns World Stamp Almanac, Fourth Edition (1982): Huge (756 page) philatelic encyclopedia with sections on just about every philatelic subject imaginable, and with a great index. The publisher later said "...this is the most useful single reference a collector can own." That might be a little self-serving, but it is very close to the mark! It is almost impossible in this small space to even begin to list all the subjects covered. 30 chapters divided into many more sections, this contains so much information in one place that you may never discover it all. There was a sixth edition published in 2000, and a fifth in 1989, but I am not aware of a seventh. However, the content seems to vary from edition to edition, thus it seems desirable to have more than just one. I see some subjects in this which I do not find in the next edition. Sure, some bits of the content are dated, but probably 95% of it is perfectly valid today. Softbound. Very gently used.

Linns World Stamp Almanac, Third Edition (1980): Huge (757 page) philatelic encyclopedia with sections on just about every philatelic subject imaginable, and with a great index. The publisher later said "...this is the most useful single reference a collector can own." That might be a little self-serving, but it is very close to the mark! It is almost impossible in this small space to even begin to list all the subjects covered. 30 chapters divided into many more sections, this contains so much information in one place that you may never discover it all. There was a sixth edition published in 2000, a fifth in 1989, and a fourth in 1982, but I am not aware of a seventh. However, the content seems to vary somewhat in the earlier editions, thus it seems desirable to have more than just one. Sure, some bits of the content are dated, but probably 90% of it is perfectly valid today. Softbound. Gently used.

Tristan Da Cunha - Its Postal History and Philately: (Mackay, Crabb, 1965) Important 72-page handbook with emphasis on the postal history of this fascinating area. The only current offering I found for this on the web was at $125! Like-new condition; appears never to have been read.

Korean Stamp Review: Four quarterly issues: 1991/3, 1991/4, 1992/2, and 1992/3. Quite interesting and well produced. Full color and in ENGLISH. Too nice to discard.

Mushrooms on Stamps: (Casciero and Ultee, 1999) Comprehensive-looking 83-page softbound book, without illustrations. No catalog numbers, presumably due to copyright issues. However, lists by country, issue date, denomination, and species. Also with a comprehensive species index. Like-new condition. This may be a fairly scarce book; I was unable to find any examples offered.

Theatre Philatelic: (Shiffler, 1994; ATA Handbook #126) Organized alphabetically by stamp subject, usually with paragraph on the subject, followed by a listing of the stamps (country, year, Scott number) that show that subject. Though, of course, does not include the last 22 years of stamp issues, this is extremely useful if you wish to find stamps that fit very specific theatre-related subjects. Like-new condition. Softbound, 264 pages.

Collecting World Coins - A Century of Monetary Issues: (Bruce, Moe; Krause Publishing; 1992) Fourth Edition. Excellent, wide-ranging world coin catalog. Thousands of photos. This is a used, deaccessioned library copy that appears to be in extremely good used condition with all pages present, but no guarantees.

Coin Collectors Survival Manual, Fourth Edition: Published in 2000, this is a how-to about coin collecting and every aspect of it that you can think of. Sure, it is dated, but much of the information is still just as useful today. Brand new condition. Original cost $18.95.
