it is titled "catalogue of british local stamps" by gerald rosen 1979? if your a member of the american philatelic society you can request it from them or there is two used book websites that sell a copy for $118 not sure if it is recent or older than the one i got from the aps. i am still trying to get photobucket to work so posting a picture of the cover might take a while.

Be careful, otherwise you will get a stern rebuke for not using a few capital letters here and there as appropriate. :|

I presume that the APS would have a later edition; I don't think Mr Rosen has produced anything since the 1979 edition. John Aitchison produces a retail list - the ones I have are not illustrated. (email address on the 2008 edition is britishlocals@aol.com)
If that doesn't work, and you can't find anything else on the www, email me for a phone number.

But quite honestly, few of these fabrications - widely sold on eBay - serve a need, bearing the names of uninhabited 'islands'.

List 25 of July 2008 is for the Channel Islands of Green Island, Liho, Hommerill, Houmet Paradis & Benet.
List 28 of Sept 2008 is for such unnecessary places as Puffin Island (in the mouth of the Thames, I ask you :roll: ), Birnbeck Island, Calf of Man, Lindisfarne (you can drive there, for heaven's sake :!: ), Sealand (one of the WW2 forts in the Thames Estuary), and many many more.

Douglas, anything you like or enjoy is a legitimate area for collecting - in spite of what some of the naysayers might tell you...

...you might not make a fortune doing it, or win many prizes. BUT these "local" areas can be very interesting, and based where you are, there'll be plenty of interest from your collector-friends, who almost certainly won't have seen anything like them before.

MOD HAT ON

Hello douglas5102,
Please read the rules!
Especially:
Rule 17. Please Present Your Posts Thoughtfully and NEATLY

"You are what you post". You can come across to others here as either slap-dash and sloppy and near illiterate - or neat and tidy and professional - the choice is always yours.

Some wise members even take a little time to use the "PREVIEW" button to look over their posts, to see if the image has loaded correctly, to see their HEADING makes sense and uses normal punctuation, to see whether the "Quote" feature worked, and to check the colour and bold and highlights are coded correctly etc.

Best of all they download the superb and free http://www.iespell.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; tab that lets you quickly spell check every word in the post box BEFORE hitting "SUBMIT".

And they use PARAGRAPHS every couple of sentences. Vast globs of type with no paragraphs and no capital letters, and no spell check might be just fine for quick text messages from 12 year olds, but we hopefully will not see much or ANY of it on stampboards.com.

"You are what you post". Remember that. And others judge you on that. Please help us keep this board looking neat and professional. We all can do our bit.

Douglas, a couple of examples of mine - a "sideline" collection of mine is "Project Apollo". The Apollo 14 mission took place during the 1971 Postal Strike and a number of areas produced similar issues.

Love to see some of your "locals" if you'd like to scan them up :idea:

If anybody is interested, Amongst other CD Catalogues I have produced and issued for non-official stamps, I have available 3 covering these issues. (all 2012 editions)

1. Modern British Locals
2. Modern British Strike Mail
3. Modern British Railway Companies.

I also have specialised combined Albums / Catalogues for

-Pabay. -Easdale, -Summer Isles.

I naturally understand people like Ian who think that anything that doesn't appear in SG or Scott is not worth the paper it is printed on. They have to safeguard their own companies, but there are thousands of collectors who have given up on these official issues (who can afford to purchase all the 3-4 versions that USPS usually issues for each stamp) and are always looking for something interesting and at a reasonable price.

From the many people who have bought the catalogues from me, I get only favourable feedback, and sometimes even ideas for a further catalogue.

I can always be contacted though this site.

I have developed an interest in British locals over the last couple of years. I am using the 1979 Gerald Rosen catalogue as a guide, but obviously this is well out of date. I was hoping someone could point me in the direction of a more up to date catalogue, preferably in book form.Thanks in advance.

I have the same catalogue from 1979 as well as one other 1979 copy. If you find a updated copy please let me know. The 1971 Great Britain postal strike got me started into exhibiting in 2011.

Thanks Ubobo - a photo at LAST after 11 years. :lol: :lol: :lol:

So that Edition to at least 1979 exists, and maybe a post 2000 version possibly exists, that cannot be found, and no-one else has seen it appears.

And some member in Israel claims he has a vast range of CDs he refuses to show us any details or content or extract of, nor tell us prices for. :roll: :roll:

Collectors do my brain in!

If we had an annual Award for the most incompetent, most lazy seller of anything on this bard member38984 would win absolutely hands down. :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea:

Have never seen anyone so totally hopeless at promoting something they are trying to sell. Gotta love watching collectors faced with the real word of selling anything. It is like watching my cat trying to do a Cryptic Crossword Puzzle.. a train wreck in the making. :!:

member38984 has taken NINE (9) years to not even START to get his act together here on this simple issue - I'd bet even my cat would get his Crossword figured out long before that. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Firstly I had all 27 of my CD Catalogues available on Hipstamps, and then I added them to my listings on Delcampe where they reside to this day.
As I have sold well over 200 CD's so far to the complete satisfaction of my clients, I think your comments about me absolutely stink.

This genius reply more than proves my point. Absolutely and totally CLUELESS - you deserve to sell nothing.

We have over 7 MILLION posts here - if totally clueless sellers like you think anyone has time to read them all to find some alleged post from you from 9 years ago on an unnamed and unlinked thread, you truly are living on Cloud Cuckoo Land.
