Sir Francis Bacon Said That (Not a Well-Known Australian Stamp Dealer!)
The number of philatelic publications available to collectors is mind-boggling and can be overwhelming.
Unless you're a basic, worldwide collector, it's important to keep your library up to date with catalogues other than Stanley Gibbons, Scott, Michel, Yvert & Tellier and the other majors.
I've been on a bit of a shopping spree, and these are the additions to my bookshelf this month!
Stefan Heijtz is the acknowledged expert in Falkland Islands philately, and his catalogue is simply marvellous. Profusely illustrated in colour, with values based on auction and retail sales, this is a must-have for anyone with more than a passing interest in Falklands philately
As I'm also a collector of cinderellas and recently came across some scarce early Lundy material, I purchased the Lundy Island catalogue. It lists all printings, quantities and varieties, and everything is priced. Believe me, the early material is very much sought after!
