     C. A. W. writes:  “Please send me one of your marvellous 1/- Albums,
     with packet of stamps, in order that I may convince my incredulous
     friends that such a thing is possible.”

     Miss M. R. writes from Piccadilly:  “I was greatly pleased with the
     Album I received this morning, which all my friends admired, and
     thought it very cheap.”


Improved Postage Stamp Album.



Size of Page, 10 by 7-3/4 ins.

[Illustration:  COVER OF NO. 3.]

This new Edition is printed on a superior quality paper, especially made for it.  The shape is oblong, and spaces are provided according to the different requirements of the various countries.

A large number of guards have been provided so that the Album shall not bulge when full.

The Album is divided into Continents, and the name of the country only is given at the head of each page.

Fifty-seven different watermarks are illustrated in actual size, and lists are given of the various watermarks of the different countries.

Two pages of illustrations of rare stamps are given, with the price under each stamp that we will pay for it.

Special attention has been paid to the binding, which is exceptionally strong, and the covers are artistically designed.
