The comprehensive and popular ‘Handbook of Worldwide Tobacco & Trade Silk Issues’ has been revised and updated and the new soft cover reference book, as shown above, is now available for sale from the Cartophilic Society.
In addition to the numerous updates there are many new entries of previously unrecorded silk issues with 27 additional pages of text and listings, 10% more than in the previous handbook. The new 365 page book also includes 2130 detailed illustrations, all of which are in colour, that can easily be cross referenced with the text entries in the book.
‘Impressive’, ‘Work of Art’, A wonderful book’, ‘A great book’ are some of the written comments already received.
The Handbook is a ‘must have’ for collectors and is for sale at only £25.00 or £30.00 to non members and these prices include inland postage. Just visit the publications link at the top of the site to find this book and many more that we offer to collectors!
