Stockholmia Library & Exhibition Hardback Catalogues
With its 430 large-format pages, perfectly laid out and richly illustrated, this catalogue is already a highlight. Not to forget the extensive presentation of the unique exhibits in the “Court of Honour”. Exquisite world rarities of philately compete with the collection shown by Alan Holyoake on the “Dawn of Philately”, which goes back to the early years of Great Britain. All this can be enjoyed and admired in this catalogue,
The name of the catalogue sounds dry and uninviting at first, but this book written by Wolfgang Maassen unfolds its fascination while reading. For one does not only receive profound insights into the philatelic literature published by the “Royal” since 1873, but also well-founded overviews of the titles which the association has awarded with the famous Crawford Literature Medal. Anyone who believes that something like this can also be found on the Internet is quickly misled. What the author documents here - including over 1,300 photos! - are so far unpublished data and facts with short book descriptions, which are however substantial. This book corrects many completely inadequate and incomplete lists, but it also encourages you to collect literature and enjoy its value and beauty.
