About: German Colonies and Post Offices Abroad: Catalogue of the Postmarks

Recognizing that collecting German colonial stamps and postmarks has become an international hobby, the editorial staff of the 'Working Group of the Collectors of stamps of the German colonies and post offices abroad' in charge decided to publish an English edition based on the latest German edition of the catalogue of the postmarks of German Colonies and Post Offices abroad. This edition indicates values based on average auction price results, or, where such were not determinable, by average market prices. New to this edition is the illustration position of the postmarks in the catalogue, which are now arranged adjacent to the left page-border to enable the applicable text to be arranged to the right to avoid any misreading or inapplicability to the postmark. This catalogue has, accordingly, expanded. This catalogue is not a "handbook" or a substitute for in-depth study of specialized reference publications, but, rather, complements those. Postal historical themes are, thus, occasionally mentioned and necessary because of relationship to a particular postmark.
