The six volumes of Robson Lowe’s Encyclopaedia of British Empire Postage Stamps together form an unparalleled work of great use to British Empire collectors.
This is the Maritime Provinces only section from Volume 5 in the series – British North America. As with the rest of the series, the book not only covers the adhesive postage stamp issues in detail, but also the postal history of, in this case, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island (including the remainders and reprints), including postal rates, transport of mails, handstamps, cancellations, etc. Well illustrated throughout, including two colour plates.
