Item description


Picture for illustration only


There is no cover, Although the pages are aged in colour the binding is still excellent and no tears or damage to the pages. Nearly sixty years after it was originally published in September 1949 P.C. Litchfield's Guide Lines to the Penny Black remains a must have for any stamp collector who is serious about collecting the Penny Black stamp or whose stamp collection centres on early Victorian line engraved issues.

Litchfield's lively history and clear explanations of the entire process of creating the world's first stamp from its initial conception and design through to the setting of the soft steel rollers and eventual hardened steel plates and the consequential tell-tale “defects” that this complicated procedure left behind is essential reading for all philatelists regardless of their individual specializations. A detailed description of each one of the 2880 stamps and the plates from which they were printed
