Geoff Kellow the superb 'Stamps Of Victoria' Handbook Retail $165. $A150
Geoff Kellow the superb 'Stamps Of Victoria' Retail $165. $A150
"The Stamps of Victoria", Dr Geoff Kellow, FRPSL, RDP. The definitive publication on this subject, this book presents in a comprehensive and readable form, an in-depth treatment of all of Victoria's stamps.

For each Victorian stamp, a history is presented in its entirety, including design essays and printer's proofs. It is large format hardbound and beautifully illustrated (approximately 900 illustrations), many in colour, near 400 pages.

A must-have reference for collectors and EVERY dealer, and those interested in the Philately and history of Victoria.

This superb publication has won many awards at Philatelic Exhibitions including a Gold medal at Kuala Lumpur. High original price - of retail $A165 - and I have seen these get as high as $200 + buyer's premium at auction.

THE Ultimate reference on Victoria. Quoted as "The Bible" by most. Large hardbound by RPSV.

Almost never offered. Profuse illustrations, incl colour plates. With original gloss dust jacket. BRAND NEW.

Stamps, Duties, Dues, Railways, Excellent Postal Stationary, forgeries, reprints, Specimens, CTOs - - the WORKS on this state - and all compiled by the man who had a super personal collection on this state.

And worked using full access to Rod Perry’s collection too – who owned THE finest collection ever formed of this State – surpassing even Bill Purves superb efforts. Indeed this book was essentially the sale catalogue in the end!

Numbers sold, and numbers printed and listed for many issues .. info found nowhere else. Detailed write ups of how to sort printings within printings.

Unbeatable preface on printing and perforation styles used. Brilliant coverage on the complicated "Half Lengths".

The much thinner, modern era Robert Gibbs "GRI" book sold for $A750 at a recent Prestige sale, so superb content hard-cover books in a small print run always do very well long term.

I have sold about 40 of the Arthur Gray "Kangaroos" auction catalogue for $A150 each. On ebay now they get MORE than that. And that was a free auction catalogue printed in MANY times the numbers this was.

$A150 plus post

"Knowledge Is Power" - as I never cease typing - and these 3 massive books give you that knowledge. YES they are pricey, but with Victoria numeral cancels on common 1d red QV's now getting over $2,000 at auction, NOT owning these is costing you money and enjoyment.

There 3 books are written by 3 world acknowledged leaders in their field. You are buying 150 years of knowledge and study here.

The truth is, it takes me as long to carefully pack 1 book, as 2 or 3. And POSTAGE within Australia on 3 copes is generally identical as for 1 copy. So you save big time on shipping buying 2 or 5 volumes.

All these books I have seen get higher prices than my asking price at Auction. All are BRAND NEW AND PERFECT in colour dust sleeves, as I sourced an original holding.

I saw a foxed/spotty second hard copy get more than my asking price at auction recently with MANY bidders!

I cannot understand why some folks bypass the discount offers above on these brand new and clean 2 x huge and superb books, and buy poxy, spotty second hand copies at auction at FAR higher prices!

Prestige Auction had both for offer at auction - and both had strong bidding taking them way above estimates.

A second hand Freeman cancel book sold for $210 plus 16.5% "fees" = $A245

http://www.stampboards.com/images/prestigephilately/catlot.p ... oks&lim=20

And a Kellow second hand described as spotty/foxed got $130 + 16.5% "fees" = $A151 plus post

http://www.stampboards.com/images/prestigephilately/catlot.p ... oks&lim=20

(They described this book as you can see - "In our opinion, the finest single-country handbook ever written")

My price for the BOTH .. clean and fresh and brand new = $A285 (NO FEES!) - yet these Auction buying geniuses forked out near on $400 for the identical books in well used copies!

Glen, I'll take one, though shipping to Canada might be pricey.

If you still have a copy of the Freeman "Numeral Cancels of Victoria" and/or the Manning "Queensland - Numeral Cancellations" books, it would probably make sense to buy them at the same time (for shipping reasons, and discount). Even the CD, though they might be sold out as well.

What can I say, I love cancels and history; so what if my Australia/colonies collection is pretty small at this point.

Just e-mail me what's available and we can go from there.
thanks

Yes have this, and both superb Manning books (the NEW updated editions too!) and the Freeman CD. :)

Post is remarkably cheap to USA and Canada, the way I do it. :mrgreen:

The franking I use is worth MORE to you to sell than it costs - see the evidence of it all here! -

Ok, I will order later today (tomorrow latest). Have to make the decision on how many of these books to get. For certain the Kellow, the CD and the Manning on Numeral cancels.

You mention both Manning books, but not the Freeman book on Victoria. Is that one similar to the Geoff Kellow book? I am asking because I am especially interested in the Numeral cancels.

Yes can do this one too. And will add VERY little to mail cost even though it weighs 2 kilos or so! :mrgreen:

Found a few brand new fresh copies in the original dust covers in my end of year tidy up of stock today, that I forgot I had in a carton in my upstairs storage room, so out these go for just $A125!

A Gold Medal Winning book, and remember Prestige got $151 for a second hand and foxed book, after much bidding, and Gary Watson described it as -


"In our opinion, the finest single-country handbook ever written"


Have stocks right here of all these superb titles below -- brilliant additions for any library. Buy yourself a USEFUL Xmas Gift - or hint to the Family! :)

My lifetime Stamp Manta is "Knowledge Is Power", and I HEAVILY support Philatelic Publishers. Just one modest find using any of those books, will repay the cost right there, and a decent find, just ONCE in your life, will repay book price FIVE times over. A no brainer really!

Shipping cost is often around the SAME in Australia for 1 or 3 or 4 or 5 books! LayBy/Layaway is of course always available on all my stock. ALL are in stock here and now - NO other dealer in the country has stock of all these now.

Buy 4 or more titles at one time, and deduct another 10% from the entire order! :mrgreen:
