CAPON Richard and GIBB Bill & STEWART George The Farthing
CAPON Richard and GIBB Bill & STEWART George The Farthing

BWISC (2021)
102pp. 1st ed., new in card covers.
The humble farthing, which not that many people will remember, was the cost of posting Printed Papers locally in some colonies of the Empire. Most were in the West Indies. This book catalogues all of these stamps and shows some very uncommon uses. The coverage extends outside the West Indies to Malta in particular and also to Fiji. There are instances where farthing stamps/labels were used as revenues in Australia, South Africa and diverse places, such as Heligoland. There are listed examples of the farthing labels used in the Highland Railways of Scotland. Places where farthing stamps were used are all covered and as a special treat there is an appendix showing some rare uses from the Ronald Rong Collection

GLEADALL Mary The Tudway Letters.
GLEADALL Mary The Tudway Letters.

B.W.I.S.C. (2016)
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.
