Hunter had at one time an irregular block which showed portions of three panes in one row and a part of a pane in the row below. Furthermore, one of the three panes was placed tete beche to the other two. From this it was thought probable that the plate contained one hundred stamps, in ten panes, arranged in two rows of five. But there is evidence which contradicts this theory. I have recently seen several of these stamps, each of which showed, at one end, an overlapping impression of a small portion of another stamp. From these double impressions I conclude that the plate contained only one group of ten stamps, that several Description, varleties and plate. impressions were taken on one sheet of paper, and that, through carelessness, one impression slightly overlapped another.

The first date is probably Dates of m. copied from the same journal for 1877, and is doubtless as incorrect as is the last. In the number dated December 20th, 1874, we read concerning this stamp: "This was used in Baltimore in 1861, but was, I am inclined to think, issued by the U..S. P. O. in that city for carriers use." Coster says (1882): "All efforts t...
New in New jacket. It is the reprint edition of the original edition which was published long back (1902). The book is printed in black on high quality paper with Matt Laminated colored dust cover. We found this book important for the readers who want to know more about our old treasure so we brought it back to the shelves. We tried to manage the best possible copy but in some cases, there may be some pages which are blur or missing or with black spots. We expect that you will understand our compulsion in these books.
