|REGO Michael R. Colonial Bank in the West Indies|

|GLEADALL Mary The Tudway Letters.|
x + 266 large pp. 1st ed., new in card covers.
This book concerns the Tudway family’s correspondence from 1751 to 1858. Over 1,400 covers were discovered and this work by Mary Gleadall examines the history of the family, the history of their employees in the West Indies and the correspondence emanating from that relationship. Mary’s dedicated researches into the old families of Antigua and Barbados over an extended period and her persistence in getting deep into the social history and political events that allowed the plantations of this period to flourish is breathtaking. It comprises a serious and thorough record of the contents of the hundreds of letters that reflect the concerns and challenges facing the writers, problems with weather, crop fertility and difficulties in managing the workforce. A very thought-provoking book which goes beyond pure philately and should be valued by all interested in the West Indies.
|FREELAND Charles and JORDAN John M. Antigua. The stamps and postal history.|
x + 299 large pp. 1st ed., new in D/W.
Coming so early in the alphabet Antigua has always been one of the most popular of the small Caribbean islands. It has an interesting mix of early stamps printed by Perkins Bacon and De La Rue including a number of rarities. On the postal history front Antigua is especially well endowed, with the Codrington and Tudway estate correspondences. There is also a rich variety of early postal markings, including some unique marks. The original inspiration for this book was the Antigua Monograph published in successive issues of the British Caribbean Philatelic Journal over a 15 year period between 1973 and 1988. This book collates all this information, updates it and presents it in a most readable form.

xx + 492 large pp. New in D/W. (For society members discount please add the society name in the message box on the order form)
Since its publication in 1997 this work has become the standard reference for collectors of the issues of this King George V Universal key plate style. It was awarded the prestigious Crawford Medal by the Royal Philatelic Society, London, for the most valuable and original contribution to the study and knowledge of philately published in book form during the relevant period. It was further awarded a Large Silver Gilt medal in the Literature section of the British National Stamp Exhibition in 1998. This study encompasses the issues of all of the 17 colonies that employed this design. From a comprehensive examination of the De La Rue and Crown Agents archives it has been possible to produce a listing of every printing made of this key plate style. A wealth of additional information has been added to this basic framework that adds flesh to the bare bones of printing statistics. A fascinating feature of this issue is the large range of different numbered key plates employed during its life and collectors will find here listed all value/plate number combinations that were used for each colony. Of particular interest to the specialist is an in-depth study of the flaws that developed on the various key plates and the damage sustained to the marginal areas of the plates, and this section has been considerably enhanced. In certain cases these can provide significant evidence of printing dates. A further important aspect of this work has been a review of the philatelic practises and procedures employed by De La Rue and the Crown Agents during the King George V period and this information may well be of great relevance to students of other issues within this period. This second edition updates the original work and provides much new information. In addition the vast majority of the original black and white illustrations have now been provided in colour and a considerable number of further illustrations have been included.
