James Bendon - "UPU Specimen Stamps Of The World - 1878–1961" Huge new Edition - 534 pages, hardbound
About 534 pages, 1,800 colour illustrations of Worldwide UPU issued Specimen stamps, CTOs and postal stationary. Superb "leather look" grained thick covers, hard bound in library buckram, with gold tooling. Superb British printed and bound quality - not the usual cheap Chinese junk, on acidic paper!
A superb and comprehensive book of Global reference. Weight near 3 kilos, all cello shrink wrapped for gift giving etc.
My long time dealer colleague James Bendon phoned me before Christmas and asked if I wanted a large carton of these, and I said yes as it was such a fabulous work, and they have arrived here, and are an essential library purchase.
I've ordered many later cartons, as they have sold so well.
James spent months liaising with Dr Geoff Kellow, ACSC Editor, on all the UPU cancels known on Australia and States and Papua etc, and this is the ONLY place all these listings and photos are found in the one place.
Read the glowing REVIEWS of the book from "Gibbons Stamp Monthly" and from the Scott Catalogue/Linns Editor Chad Snee, and others etc, etc -
My price is $A170, lower than any other Australia dealer, and indeed far lower than you ordering direct from UK, when high UK postage is added.
James is NOT a young man, and as he said to me in his wonderfully plummy English voice - "trust me Glen, this update took me 28 years, and this will definitely be the LAST edition of these I'll be producing!"
I only have a few left from the last large carton from UK, so order NOW if you want it at this price.
When they are sold out, this type of book is the type of thing that is eternally sought by future collectors, often at several times the issue price.
James was for decades the main "go to" man for all global UPU Specimen stamps. A specialist dealer in this area, I sold him some rare pieces that came my way, including some from a South Pacific nation PO archive. He saw it "all" over 60 years or more in dealing.
The prestigious Royal Philatelic Society London has awarded it the 2017 Crawford Medal, for "the most valuable and original contribution to the study and knowledge of philately published in book form, during the past two years"
Just $US115 right now -
And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again.

Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Administrator or ozstamps) here (or on my website https://www.glenstephens.com/rarity.html ) for sale in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer here, in case something else appeals:
And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to glen [at] glenstephens.com - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see: https://tinyurl.com/GlenBuy
As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers, and offer it here at NETT prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my NETT prices, as in auction!
Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - https://tinyurl.com/GlenRare and https://tinyurl.com/GlenSpec
All stampboards lots $A100 and under are generally mailed Unregistered and untracked at YOUR total risk, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. 1000s of my transactions here for 10 years have been safe by normal post.
Orders over $100 are normally sent Registered (PO cover is to $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local, and minimum $A16 ($US12) extra foreign, depending on weight. Only YOU know if your street or Apartment address is secure - a large packet covered in pretty stamps left outside, just might tempt passers-by? Only YOU know that, I do not. Mail contractors these days are often lazy and leave packets on top of mailboxes etc in view of public, and/or out in wet weather etc. PO Boxes are FAR safer.
"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap at $A2 per $100 covered - and all are strongly advised to use this, and I will, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - https://tinyurl.com/Glen2-15 It is like Travel Insurance - decline that when booking your ticket, and THEN tell Qantas you really meant to take it 3 weeks back, and you now need to cancel your ticket for no penalty, and see how you go with THAT one!
As per stampboard convention - this lot is offered exclusively first to board members - and on no other sales venue.
For members who make a BANK TRANSFER or Money Order etc, you WILL generally get your goods faster, as it saves me some hassle - but you MUST email me the confirmation number etc - many "forget"!
