Publisher: Robson Lowe, London, 1949

Hardback, illustrated, xvi + 448 pages, slight bump to upper edge of front cover, light soiling to the covers, previous owner’s inkstamp to front & rear pastedown-endpapers, some dust-marks and foxing to page-edges and endpapers, in Good condition.

Second 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 Africa, including postal rates, handstamps, cancellations, military campaigns, etc. Well illustrated throughout. For collectors of British Africa this should be a “must”.
