What's in this Issue?
The January issue features the first part of a major examination of the stamps of China, starting with Imperial China revealing the history of the country’s first stamps, their design and production, the notable and rare sets, and information for readers to start their own collection.
Our philatelic tour of the world also stops off in Greece, as we provide a collecting guide to 1947’s beautiful ‘Restoration of the Dodecanese Islands’ set; and also in Montenegro, a small nation with a larger-than-life ruler and a few philatelic surprises.
As ever, British stamps and postal history is also covered, and we provide a range of thematics guides, including showcasing an intriguing collection on diabetes, recently displayed at Stampex.
With a guide to the York stamp and coin fair, plus a review of ‘The Year in Stamps’ and a guide to 2019 Stamp Yearbooks, January’s Stamp Collector has everything you need to get your collecting year off to a fantastic start!
