Literature: World: Scott Catalogs  
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.

2017 Scott Catalogue Volume 1 (U.S. and A-B countries, complete): Used, but in virtually brand-new condition except for a bumped corner at the top/back corner of the spine. Complete with all pages. Binding in excellent condition, other than the noted bumped corner -- hardly actually used at all. The latest edition list price new is $120 and it can be obtained from supply sources about $90 plus shipping. If you do not need the absolute latest listings and prices, this is a huge savings. This volume, which includes United States, is always the hardest to obtain in used condition at a low price.

2014 Brookman U.S. and Canada Stamp Catalog: Like-new. Brookman price guide of U.S., Canada, and UN, stamps, FDCs, and Autographs. Plastic spiral bound. In excellent condition with all pages present. This is a really handy catalog and some version (this or later) is a must-have for quickly valuing some types of items for which listings are hard to find: U.S. Mint Sheets, U.S. Year Sets and Year Books, U.S. Duck Stamps including States, U.S. Inauguration Covers, U.S. WWII and Korean War Patriotic Covers, Canadian Hunting Permit Stamps, AUTOGRAPHS (ABOUT 39 PAGES). Brookman is a "retail price guide" so the values are on the high side, but it is quick and easy to use. This is certainly recent enough to be quite useful. Most U.S. collectors would benefit from having this on the shelf.

2013 Scott CLASSIC WORLDWIDE SPECIALIZED TO 1940 Catalogue: A specialized catalog of the first one hundred years of worldwide stamps, with Scott listings up thru 1940 (a little later in a few countries). The U.S. portion is somewhat specialized in the stamp listings, but is not a replacement for the U.S. Specialized Catalog (which itself is nearly as large). For the rest of the world, the listings are usually more specialized than the in the Standard Catalog, and often with hundreds of additional listings/prices for varieties, uses on cover, multiples, etc. Every serious collector of worldwide stamps should have at least one edition of this catalog, even if not the most recent. Hardbound, 1264 pages in the 2013 edition. This is an GENTLY USED copy; the pages are in perfect condition and the binding is in excellent condition (sound and strong). The latest (2021) edition lists for $179 and can be found for around $150! While there are incremental changes and improvements each year, this edition will still be extremely useful and if you have never seen one, it may be a real eye-opener!

2010 Scott Catalogue Volume 1 (U.S. and A-B countries, complete) - POOR CONDITION: Heavily used Volume 1 in POOR CONDITION. The previous owner loved his catalogs a bit too much. While the binding structures itself (the spine) is in reasonable condition, the front and back covers are a mess (torn, bent, etc.) and the front and back 20-30 pages are a mess, with heavy creasing, folding, etc. I think the catalog are complete with no pages missing (but no guarantee!), but it is NOT a thing of beauty. Despite the poor condition, it is much too useful and valuable to a collector who simply cannot or does not want to pay the very high cost of better quality -- I want to see somebody get some use out of it. Though a few years old, this 2010 edition is still very useful for everything except the latest listings and the latest prices. Very little has changed in terms of the basic content. Keep in mind that the latest edition list price new is $120 per full volume and can be obtained from supply sources about $90 each plus shipping -- even a couple years old single volume costs around $30 in good used condition. (ONLY FOR SHIPMENT WITHIN THE U.S. BY MEDIA MAIL.) NOT RETURNABLE FOR ANY REASON.

2009 Scott Catalog Volume 5 (P-SL countries): Used, complete with all pages. Binding in excellent condition. The first 100 or so pages are slightly affected by moisture out at only one part of the very outer edge of the pages; you might not even notice it. Otherwise, I would classify this as excellent used conidtion. The latest edition list price new is around $120 and it can be obtained from supply sources for about $90 plus shipping. If you do not need the absolute latest listings and prices, this is a huge savings.

1999 Scott U.S. Specialized Catalogue: Now about 20 years old and slimmer than the current editions, this U.S. Specialized should be useful for somebody who just wants basic information and does not care about current values or the latest stamp issues. Used condition, but too useful to discard.

1989 Scott Catalogue COMPLETE SET PLUS U.S. Specialized: The complete 1989 set of four volumes, PLUS the U.S. Specialized. Very gently used, complete with all pages. The covers and bindings are excellent. The pages look like this catalog set saw very little use. Keep in mind that this was issued 31 years ago and a lot of stamps have been issued since then. In 1989 it was a set of four single-volume books (plus the Specialized) -- each of those volumes is thinner than each of the current six volumes, each of which is two books! Today it is in color, back then it was in black and white. However, if you are mostly interested in older stamps, much of the information is still the same, though of course the prices have changed since then. This would be great for someone just getting started who is not sure they want to spend $100 per volume for the current six volumes. The price is great and the Media Mail postage (to anywhere in the U.S.) will be about $14.

1942 Scott Catalog: The cloth-bound edition without indexed thumb holes. This 1942 edition presents the first 100 years of the whole world of postage stamps. That is pretty amazing in itself at the time, but additionally, this was produced and printed (with limited paper supplies) during the depths of the war. Additionally interesting to me is, while I do not recall the exact date that the Scott editors revised the numbering system, adding the letter prefixes, this must be soon after that event. In the 1942 introductory section, the editors presented a section about the prefixes that starts with "Under the present numbering system the use of a scientific arrangement of prefix letters obviates the necessity for future number changes. ..." (That just goes to show that "spin" was also practiced in 1942. They could have chosen to say "The previous generation of editors failed to think ahead and realize that the quantity of stamps to be issued would over-run the previous numbering system.") A very interesting and collectible catalog. I am fascinated by comparing the listings and values of today to those during WWII. Used, a little bit worn, in surprisingly good condition.
