1887 edition Postage stamps, envelopes & post cards of Australia & British colonies of Oceania

"The Postage Stamps, Envelopes & Post Cards of Australia & the British Colonies of Oceania" by The Philatelic Society, London (1887) with the plates of "autotype illustrations" etc, hardbound, the binding use worn as always and a few pages showing some effects of aging.

A rare and much sought-after book, commonly referred to simply as "Oceania". Nearly all Aust States content - a little of Fiji and New Zealand is included.

The RPSL 1887 Leather Bound States 'OCEANIA' reference BIBLE for $A350

A Must-have for collectors of older States material and postal stationery and postcards etc. A work in constant demand, and after 137 years almost none have survived. Only 500 were ever printed!

I've seen these invoice at well over $1000 at large auctions.

Complete with a neat built in bookbinder wallet of illustrations of complete sheets and reconstructions etc.

Bought from Estate of a doctor who had a nice library. Pretty decent shape for 137 years! Original condition - not 'rebound' as many have been


$350 plus Global Post


Call it - "OCEANIA : Stock 476CN" - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - www.tinyurl.com/GlensOrder And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then often lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again. :twisted:

Image

All payment details etc are on: www.tinyurl.com/GlenPay - NICE VFU franking is always used, and I ALWAYS use stamps of some kind locally : see member pix of some of that franking here - www.tinyurl.com/GlenCTO COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money when buying more than 1 lot at once! For overseas members, to find out the approx goods cost in YOUR currency, click here - www.xe.com - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, my prices are REALLY cheap in your money - lowest for years! MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet. :)

Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Admin or ozstamps) here (or on my RARITY website www.tinyurl.com/RarityGlen ) for sale, in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer on the pages here, in case something else appeals. And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to ozstamps [at] outlook dot 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: www.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 here, 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! ZERO extra charged to use any cards - or PayPal in ANY currency. Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - www.tinyurl.com/GlenRare and www.tinyurl.com/StampDeals

Orders over $75 are ALWAYS sent Registered (but Max PO cover is for $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local. Request this on order form IF you require it, under $A100. Letter size FOREIGN sendings globally are usually only about $4 untracked. Smallish, large packet items *FOREIGN* up to 500g/1lb are normally sent in stout card pre-paid *EXPRESS* or Registered Envelopes, cost $A20 generally, near always dodging you inward VAT/GST Taxes/Fees! 😊

"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap and prudent at $A2 per $A100 covered locally, or $3 per $A100 overseas - and all buyers are strongly advised to use this, and I generally will add it automatically, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - www.tinyurl.com/Glen2-15 - Phone me anytime with any queries on these stamps: 0409 - 399 - 888

Sold, a rare and info packed book.

The Doctor had 2 copies of it actually in his library, both in decent shape for huge age -- so if anyone else wants the other, get in FAST!

Have not had one for 45 years of dealing, and buy 2 at one time. :lol: :lol: :lol:
