Penny Black Sesquicentennial (150th anniversary). A lovely 100 page Fleetwood created collection in custom 3-post binder (minor scuff on the cover). Includes a detailed account of the development of the world’s first postage stamp, showing illustrations of the major players and the processes that lead up to the 1840 date of issue. The 129 stamps and 32 souvenir sheets, from a wide variety of countries are attractively mounted in black mounts. This would make for a nice addition to a Penny Black or early British collection. It makes for interesting reading and would also will be of interest to a "stamp on stamp" topical collector. Enormous initial cost. Estimate =
