Peter's Stamps


Great Britain ~ Prestige books

Prestige books contain stamps and text relevant to the title. Earlier books held definitive stamps only but since 1990, commemorative stamps have also appeared. In many cases these books are the only source of some stamp variations particularly Machin and, latterly, Wilding definitives.

I have other Machin stamp books (not Prestige) which are too numerous to list here. If these may be of interest, I will email you a copy of my list which will be in Stanley Gibbons numeration. If this numeration does not help and there is a particular booklet you want, please describe it in detail and I will do my best.
