R. H. White

Encyclopedia of the Colors of United States Postage Stamps by R. H. White Covers the 1847 - 1918 issues, The standard work on the colors, papers and gum of US stamps.

Color in Philately by R. H. White Philatelic articles on color of various stamps are of interest. The binding is poor and we expect pages to fall out with normal use. This book is not to be confused with a color guide for stamps but a discussion of color with some illustrations in color. 1979, 175 pages with 16 bound in plates; pocket contains one errata slip, 12 cards having color charts and a booklet, complete as issued, $60.00 sold out, incomplete copies lacking 12 card plates, $25.00 please enquire
