Third volume in the unparallelled series of great use to British Empire collectors. 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, British Asia, including postal rates, handstamps, cancellations, military campaigns, etc. and with an Appendix on Early Indian Cancellations by W. Renouf. Well illustrated throughout, including three colour plates. For collectors of British Asia this should be a “must”.
