France (Pt. 6) (Stanley Gibbons Stamp Catalogue) - Softcover
Published in colour for the first time, this catalogue covers the stamps of the French Colonies, Andorra and Monaco, as well as France itself. Numerous editorial amendments have been made, most notably to the 'Soiver' definitives of France, where the various 'Types' are now illustrated and listed, while new notes are provided on the methods used to send mail in and out of Paris during the siege of 1870-71. Details of machine labels have been expanded for France and Spanish Andorra and the 'Vichy' colonial issues are now individually listed and priced for the first time. Prices have been carefully checked and many thousands of changes have been made. Early issues of the French colonies and modern France and territories issues, in particular, see a number of increases. The last edition of this popular catalogue, published nearly five years ago, sold out very rapidly, so early ordering is advised.
