Magazine Description

In this issue

"In the October issue, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of postal independence for the Channel Islands, examining the steady development of Guernsey’s and Jersey’s philatelic programmes and selecting the 10 most memorable special issues from each island.   We also mark the 150th anniversary of the postcard, which began life simply as an item of postal stationery, and study its evolution through the 1870s, 1880s and 1890s as its role widened and its utility improved.   Commonwealth Classics features the 1908-09 definitives of Zanzibar, a landmark issue for an ambitious young sultan, while our new series investigating Penny Black covers looks at how postmasters struggled to come to terms with how to postmark them. This month’s Great Engravers slot focuses on Alan Dow, and unsung hero from the Bradbury Wilkinson studio.   Our news pages have full details of Britain’s new special issue honouring Royal Navy Ships, and we flag up other interesting new releases around the world, from Ireland to Australia. Highlights from the auction rooms include a genuinely unique stamp, up for auction for the first time in decades. As ever, our columnists and readers contribute their forthright views on a wide range of themes."
