Philatelic Bibliopole

JOURNALS

As we buy complete U.S. philatelic libraries in addition to the books and pamphlets we also get the journals, auction catalogs, show programs and at times even original research notes and manuscripts.

Dealing in the books is relatively straight forward as most titles only have a few printings and states. A new acquisition only requires a few minutes to identify and check for defects prior to cleaning and adding to stock.

The journals and auction catalogs are complex. Many of these span a long period with hundreds and even thousands of different items being issued in various formats. The time required to sort such material and the space to stock it are considerable cost considerations. In purchasing such material we must check to make sure the rare or expensive items are present and then estimate the value of the rest. On stocking the purchase we give it only a quick initial sort by journal and period. Once there is a prospective customer for a long run and have determined the requirements we proceed with the details.

Some Journals are also under Assundry

Club de Monte-Carlo 2013

Milestones of the Philatelic Literature

of the 19th Century

by Wolfgang Massen and Vincent Schouberechts

This book was published by the Club de Monte-Carlo for the 2013 exhibit. An exceptional work on the early and major philatelic literature, the books, authors and publishers, with an emphasis on the early works dealing with forgers and forgeries. It is both detailed, authoritative and enjoyable to read.The only comparable study to date is the Crawford Index and the series by Dr.Manfred Amrehein. I consider it an exceptional work and not hurt too much by my small contribution. In English and French, full color, 512 pages, large format, published at €60 (we believe half the production costs), limited stock, $210 plus our standard $5 part postage and for foreign plus actual postage.
