One sold in Ace Stamp Auctions' Sale #33 for $30 - you could always ask Ian if he's able to pass on your contact details to the buyer in the hope that you can make the seller a generous offer?

Keep an eye out on Status International - they had the booklets catalogue appear in auction a while ago and something might pop up in the near future.

If it helps, try checking auctions via the likes of PhilaSearch from time to time. If I see one pop up for sale, I'll let you know.

Alternatively, there are some in libraries across the country, for example in the Main Reading Room of the National Library. Could your local organise a temporary inter-library loan? Just a thought I had, although I see that you're out to buy, not to borrow!

Thank you very much Catweasle. I was the buyer of Ian's copy. I was a little disappointed in the catalogue as I was expecting it to have the detail of the 1st catalogue issued in it but it only dealt, superficially, with the Courier Post issues.

Probably because Dodgy Bill stole the original manuscript from Bert Mendelson. This update focussed on his courier mail which is his own work

Bert was a prolific collector of Norfolk Island & LHI
