Publisher: Great Britain Philatelic Society, 2005.
Large hardback, dustjacket, illustrated, vi + 278 pages + 8 colour plates, errata/corrigenda page loosely inserted, minor signs of use else in Very Good condition.
The product of six years' research, "Discovering Seahorses" is the first comprehensive study of this issue ever to be undertaken. The book relates the story behind the Seahorses' creation and the many changes they experienced. The author describes how to identify the stamps produced by the various printers, and, for the first time, gives details of every known plate for each value, including numbers printed. Comprehensive, illustrated checklists of all Seahorse shades and varieties are provided, not only for the Great Britain issues but all the Overprints (Bechuanaland, Irish Free State, Levant, Morocco and Nauru) as well. Lavishly illustrated throughout, including 8 pages of colour plates. This is the complete guide to the Seahorse issues - it should appeal to new and specialist collectors alike and is likely to be the standard reference for many years to come. Out of print and hard to find.
