(An Encyclopaedia of Maritime Postal History)

Publisher: James Bendon, Limassol, 1993.
Reprint edition, two volumes, hardback, in slipcase, illustrated, 448 + 688 pages, in VG condition.
One of the great masterpieces of philatelic literature originally published in instalments between 1955 and 1964.

This edition reprints the original in its entirety, in a slightly smaller format than the original. An essential reference work for collectors of maritime postal history.
