Collection of the 1953-1954 Royal Tour, wonderfully illustrated by postal history. A small black binder containing 34 stamps and 37 covers, all issued to commemorate the visit of Queen Elizabeth & The Duke of Edinburgh as they circumnavigated the globe in 6 months, making many first…or "first since Coronation" visits to a wide array of Commonwealth countries. Also included with the lot is a very nice edition of the book "Royal Tour" by Wynford Vaughan Thomas, which takes an in-depth look at the details and events of the trip as recorded at the time.
