“American Postal Markings” From Colonial Times to the 1850s 
by Royden H. Lounsbery
 
(144 pages Hardbound)
ISBN: 0-88000-149-6
This exhibit that was never shown - assembled with loving care in 1982 by a lifelong collector who left us before it could be shared – was published by his widow and a friend and fellow collector, “…our gift and his to the Philatelic Fellowship which had provided so much joy throughout his life.” Its 282 folded letters and covers pictured in full color at or near scale include many outstanding markings from the Colonial era to the mid-19th century, with brief stamp exhibit descriptions to tell the tale. It’s a one-of-a-kind memorial to a philatelic life well lived that you’ll turn to again and again. Frequently offered at astounding prices on the Internet.
