Baldus, Wolfgang - The Postage Stamps of the Independent State of Acre
Publisher: privately published by the author, Munich, 2004.
Paperback, colour illustrated, 32 pages, slightest shelfwear else in Very Good condition.
Booklet No. 2 in the series of booklets about unusual stamps which are not always accepted by philatelists or are difficult to classify. These include local and fantasy stamps, stamps of phantom states, and stamps of dubious origin of which only little is known. This booklet deals with the stamps issued by the Independent State of Acre - a remote region of Brazil's Amazon basin bordering Peru and Bolivia. Acre declared itself independent three times between 1900 and 1903, and at least one postage stamp was produced during that turbulent period. The history of the production of the stamps and of the later special cancel are examined in detail. With many fine colour illustrations. An excellent study, full of information which would be difficult to find elsewhere.

Negus, James - Index to The Philatelist 1866-76 & 1934-74
Publisher: Robson Lowe, London, 1975.
First edition, hardback, dustwrapper, 150 pages, VG condition.
The Philatelist was first published in 1866 but ceased ten years later. It was revived by Robson Lowe in 1934 - originally under the title The Raconteur. Its important position in the literature of philately and postal history makes this key to its contents essential to collectors. From 1871 to 1876 The Philatelist ran a series of articles on forgeries, often illustrated with actual examples of the forged stamps. This classic study of early forgeries, "The Spud Papers", is fully indexed here, with a useful introduction by Lowell Ragatz.
