Postage Stamp Album.

This new album has been based on a special order from Mr. M. P. CASTLE, Vice-President of the Philatelic Society of London, to whom we have supplied 60 of these books, and to whom reference is kindly permitted.  It has met with such an unusually favourable reception from those Collectors who have already used it that, on account of its general adaptability, it must undoubtedly quickly take a front rank in this class of publication.  Amongst its numerous advantages, one especially may be named, and that is, its convenient size, rendering it extremely portable, and suitable for attending philatelic meetings, etc.

To those Philatelists who are unable to personally inspect same at our Establishment, a brief description will be acceptable:—­

Each Album contains 50 leaves of the best hand-made paper, faced with Japanese tissue paper, so as to prevent all friction, and is bound in half red morocco, with cloth sides finished in gold.  A space on the back of the cover is left plain, so that a Collector can have his books lettered or numbered to show the contents.  Each Album is contained in a cloth drop-in case lined with lamb’s wool.  The leaves, unless specially ordered, are supplied perfectly blank, without any lined border or background, but if desired special leaves can be supplied with a fine quadrille background, as supplied to the other Philatelic Albums of this form.  Exact size of leaves from the outside edges, 10 inches by 10-1/4; available for mounting stamps, 8-3/4 inches by 10-1/4.

The price of the Album is 30/-; post-free, 30/7 (too heavy for post abroad, so will be sent carriage forward).

The Leaves, either plain or with quadrille background, can be supplied at the price of 4/6 per dozen, or 32/6 per 100.



With Patent Fastening to Flap.

Size, 6-1/2 by 4-1/4 inches.  Handsomely bound in Art Cloth.

Each book contains 12 pages, having four strips of linen, 3/4-inch wide, arranged horizontally, glued at the bottom edge and with the upper one open, for the safe retention and preservation of recent purchases or duplicates.  A large pocket is also provided at the back for Envelopes or Stamps in bulk.  In daily use by leading London Collectors.

No. 17.—­As illustrated.  Price 2/6; post-free, 2/7.

No. 18.—­Oblong, twenty-four pages, six strips on each page, interleaved with strong glazed paper to prevent rubbing.  Price 5/-; post-free, 5/3.
