Sorry to ask, and it has probably been mentioned before but I couldn't find it. Is there a centralized list where everyone's individual entries are gathered so that there is a unified list without duplicates? I would like to add what I have in my library but before I do that I would like to make sure I am not duplicating efforts.

Maybe, at a `guesstimate`, around 450 to 500 that would fill 5 bookcases and range from the 1890`s to 2015! Everything ranging from good Reference Books through to rather mundane `extracts` from other publications and hand-written `notes` by previous collectors. Not the largest by far. Remember an Auctioneer in South London some 20 years ago who had over 2000 books and catalogues filling a complete wall in his office!

Hi Luke, I dont think this is supposed to be a unified list. The original poster just seemed to be interested to know what catalogues other collectors possess.

There are of course duplications but I think the benefit of the thread is finding out about catalogues that one didn't even know existed!

I find, for example, DJCMH's contributions interesting because I also love specialist catalogues.

Cheers,
Chris

SG Great Britain Specialised Vol 1, 14th edition.
SG Great Britain Specialised Vol 2, 6th edition.
SG Great Britain Specialised Vol 3, 11th edition.
SG Great Britain Specialised Vol 4, 9th edition.
SG Great Britain Specialised Vol 5, 3rd edition (anyone know why new editions have never been produced - I think the last one was around 2001/2)
SG Great Britain Concise 2013
Deegam Machin Handbook 2nd edition
Stoneham Great Britain Catalogue 15th edition (find pricing more realistic that SG and better explanations on how to identify certain stamps)
Machin Collectors Club Specialised Definitive vols 1 &2 2007
SG Ireland 3rd edition
Hibernian Ireland 2014
SG St Helena 3rd edition
Catalogue Officiel de Timbre Poste 2007 (Belgium)

SG Belgium and Luxembourg 1st edition
Luppi Catalogue Illustre des varietes sur les timbres de Belgique 2003 (took about 10 years to track down)
Balasse Belgium 1949

Only two of those were brought new the rest were secondhand. I'm intrigued in the lists above why so many people keep old runs of catalogues - in most cases (not all) the quality of print and information has improved over the years so why hang on to old catalogues with blurry black and white photos?

On a fast track from Japan - less than 48 hrs from ordering via Amazon Japan to delivery via DHL, all at just US$9 shipping!

Image


Interesting catalog. Covers definitive issues only from 1871 to 1946 in detail, as well as Offices in China and Korea, and Military Franchise stamps.

Commemoratives not in this volume must be in a separate volume to come.

Mostly in Japanese, and while some info can be deduced via logical guessing (different perf types, shades (the name of which are given in both Japanese and English)) there lots of info here that I will probably need to ask my Japanophone friends for help with.

Still, over 200 pages, all for a little over US$30 with shipping, not a bad addition to the library!

With Yvert releasing the 2017 edition of their Colonies catalog, decided to pick a copy up as well as the 2-part post-independence Francophonie nations catalogs
Image
Couple of notes

1) As someone who has used Maury for the French colonies, the Yvert catalog seems to be, well, lacking. It's like the difference between a tricycle with training wheels (Yvert) vs a high performance bicycle for use in the Velodromes (Maury). But as Maury is irregularly produced, it is less common in francophone dealer listings, which tend to use Yvert numbers for ID purposes.

2) Amazing to think that while the French colonial period for all these former colonies fit in one convenient (and smaller-page size) catalog for 2017, the same countries (for the most part) post-independence issues require 2 volumes (on much larger pages) and this does not include the last 3-4 years of new issues. :shock:

Little pic of my specialized catalog library. Now on a five-shelf bookshelf (the bottom shelf is empty - Room for further expansion! :P )

My most recent acquisition is the 2-volume Facit 2016 Norden catalog, vol 1 being the specialized catalog up to 1951, the second covering the newer issues of Scandinavia.

Let's see... my everyday catalogs are Scott's Worldwide 2011 (ex library, $18)

I also have numerous older catalogs picked up used at various shows over the last 30 years (I think only the Concise was brought new):
SG GB Concise 2001, also SG QV Specialized, second edition
SG Part 1 Commonwealth 1982
Michel Europa West and Deutschland Specialized (both 1985), Michel Ost 1979
Facit Norden 1987
Yang's Hong Kong and PR China (both 1994)
Sakura Japan 1997
plus various other older ones as occasional reference - I think the oldest I have is a Yvert et Tellier from 1976

I rarely update non-Scott's catalogs because Scott's does a pretty good job for most things and the others already have most of the finer details I need at this stage for the older stamps that need it. If I see a used one cheap I'll get it.

Received this yesterday, Michel's catalogue for global Automatic/Computer Vended postage stamps 2013 edition
Image
flipped through it last night, and felt like I was exploring a whole new world of collecting I knew little about. (Scott only lists the USA issues, and Gibbons only mentions these stamps as footnotes, and most of my Michel worldwide catalogs end around 2003, so a big gap filled here in my knowledge base!)

Definitely a great addition to my library that was sorely needed.

My bestie from Singapore (we've been friends since undergrad days) is visiting my partner and I for the Thanksgiving holiday and he brought me a couple of early Christmas gifts. :D

Image
(He was in Adelaide on business a couple weeks ago and kindly was able to get me a copy of the new 7 Seas from a dealer there, saving me tons on shipping from Oz to the USA bless his heart. The Malaysia-Singapore is the last edition that was produced by the publisher and no future editions are planned so glad he was able to source me a copy from a dealer in Singapore)

"The Cancellations of Melbourne 1861-1921" Davies & Linfield

Post by mantisirl » Sat Apr 16, 2016 22:27:56 pm
The Cancellations of Melbourne 1861 - 1921 by Davies & Linfield is a very handy resource if you collect or are interested in this area.

There is also an article by Max Melville on rating the cancellations of Melbourne 1895-1899 that I have. Does anyone know where or when this article first appeared?

İsfila Ottoman Empire and Turkey Specialized Catalog, 2021-2022 edition
Earlier this week I received my 2021-2022 edition of the İsfila catalog, replacing my 2014 edition. Ordered from Istanbul three weeks ago, shipping was by UPS but given crazy holiday shipping levels, took three weeks to get here.

Also have the new 2019-2020 Mundifil (the Old Afinsa) Portugal and Portuguese Catalogs in the shipping network on their way from Lisbon, to replace by older editions of those two.

Another catalog upgrade arrived after a four-week voyage from Lisbon via Registered Mail (thankfully they did arrive)

Updated Portugal and Colonies catalogs from my rather ancient pre-bankruptcy Afinsa editions to shiny new Mundifil ones. Mundifil have done an excellent job in not just salvaging the catalogs from the Afinsa debacle, but expanding and improving the content. Anyone collecting Portugal and/or Colonies will find these almost essential.

I had always wanted a set of the EDIFIL specialized catalogs for Spain, but they are normally expensive (€90/volume and the complete set is 9 volumes.) But saw that EDIFIL was running a clearance sale on the previous editon (the Burdeos from mid-2010s) offering all 9 volumes for €400, FREE shipping including overseas. Too good an opportunity to pass up, and thanks to stimulus Check 3 I had a bit of extra coin I could splurge on.
EDIFIL Catalogs vols 1-3
EDIFIL Catalogs vols 1-3
EDIFIL Catalogs vols 4-6
EDIFIL Catalogs vols 4-6
EDIFIL Catalogs vols 7-9
EDIFIL Catalogs vols 7-9
All nine volumes now resting peacefully in my library :D

And for anyone who collects Spain with any degree of depth, EDIFIL is still running this sale, so a good opportunity to invest in a recent editoin of the Bible of Spanish philately.

My stamp collection is Finland and Netherlands only. Both countries till 2017. For that reason I do not need many catalogs. Moreover we nowadays can use very good online catalogs, such as Colnect. My list is not as long as some of you can present. Nevertheless, here it is:

NVPH (Netherlands) 1992
NVPH (Netherlands) 2004
Norma (Finland) 1994/1995
Norma (Finland) 2012
LaPe (Finland) 2012 (extended version)
LaPe (Finland) 2019
Michel (Finland) 2020/2021

At the moment I'm trying to buy the LaPe 2021 (the latest extended issue), but it is sold out everywhere. If any of you is willing to sell a copy, please let me know!

Happy collecting!

At the publisher's site in Finnish (http://www.stamps.fi/index.php?sivu=avaatuote&id=30328) they say that the LAPE 2021 catalogue sold out in record time and they consider making a second print. You can contact them and ask about it (http://www.stamps.fi/main.php?sivu=6).

Weeks ago I could only pre-order a LaPe 2021 catalog at Suomen Filateliapalvelu, because indeed, it was sold out. A few days ago, out of the blue, I received message that they had 1 copy to sell. So now I'm the owner of this magnificent Finnish stamp bible!

As most of my collecting interests are pre 1960's i can get away with the older out of date catalogues (such as this one which was my late Fathers as a boy!)
IMG_5458.jpg
I have the usual range of SG Parts, Empire, Michel Germany, Y&T (this the 2021 edition as i wanted the liberation overprints section) Zumstein, Unitrade and Facit but i have an Irish Specialised catalogue that i have not seen listed in this thread: MacDonnell Whyte which i find useful.

After many years of searching I finally was able to acquire the 3-volume Romanian Postage Stamp Catalogue published between 2006 and 2009.

For anyone who collects classic Romania, the first volume is a gem with all the detail anyone could ask for!
