THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO THE GREAT BRITAIN LINE ENGRAVED 1d AND 2d STARS 1840 1864. We have a very limited number of complete sets of Volumes 1 to 18 for 950 incl Inland Postage with the option to spread the payment over 6 months, including a voucher for 50 towards any purchase from List number 56 or our current Lots & Collections List. Personally I find it unbelievably useful for identifying or cross-referencing 1d Reds and Plating the 2d Stars is a "doddle" using Volume 18 (still available separately at 100 each) which includes the reproduction of the photographs of the Dendy Marshall reconstructions.
