The Authorised History of the Royal Philatelic Collection

Publisher: Methuen, London, 2004.
First edition, hardback, dustjacket, xiii + 337 pages, dustwrapper a little sunned and with a small pen-mark, minor signs of use, else in Very Good condition.
This elegant book is the definitive historical account of one of the world's most important and extensive stamp collections, and the monarchs and keepers who have contributed to it. Inaugurated by Queen Victoria, and enlarged by five successive British monarchs, the main body of the Collection came into being under George V, whose passionate and shrewd acquisition of many other private collections has ensured the unique and comprehensive character of the Royal Collection. The Queen's Stamps is a story told through the stamps themselves, many of the most famous of which are produced here in full colour, as well as through astonishing anecdotes featuring the kings, queens and courtiers who brought them together. This informative, surprising, well illustrated volume is written to appeal to the general reader, as well as to the specialist enthusiast.
