This Album is produced in a very large edition at a cost of between L2,000 and L3,000, and will be found to fulfil a long-felt want for an Album in One Volume, of high-class style, and on thoroughly good and highly surfaced paper, well and strongly bound.
The Century Album is printed on one side of the paper only, catalogue and illustrations on the left, and numbered spaces to correspond on the right-hand pages.
All minor varieties of perforation, watermark, and type are omitted, and only such varieties are included as can be distinguished by the young Philatelist.
Space has been provided for some 18,000 stamps, and provision made for new issues by the insertion of numerous blank pages.

Since the publication of the previous edition of this Album, we have published the “Century” Album, designed for those who desire to collect in the simplest form, without regard to perforations or watermarks, and who desire a complete Album in one volume.
In order, however, to further the wishes of those who collect on more elaborate methods, the present edition has been prepared and very considerably enlarged, and for all practical purposes runs parallel with our current Postage Stamp Catalogue.
The close of the century marks an epoch in the history of postage stamps, and the present edition may be considered as
A PERMANENT ALBUM
Of the Postage Stamps issued during
THE NINETEENTH CENTURY.
New issues appearing after the date of this edition are best collated and arranged in blank albums, preferably with movable leaves, such as our ORIEL or PHILATELIC ALBUMS.
