2 thoughts on “New books in the APRL, January 2014”

  1. I found an old Collector’s Christmas Seal Handbook that you published in 1986.
    By any chance, do you have an updated handbook of Christmas Seals for sale?
    If so, I’d be interested in buying 3 handbooks from you. One for myself and two to my adult kids who also have an interest in this hobby.
    Thank you for your consideration of this request.

  2. The APRL has not published a Christmas Seal handbook. The most recent book (actually, CD-ROM) that I’m aware of is the catalog published by the Christmas Seal and Charity Stamp Society:
    Green’s Catalog of the tuberculosis seals of the world. Part 1, US national Christmas seals [electronic resource] (2012 ed.) / Denune, John. / Christmas Seal and Charity Stamp Society. — [n.l.]: The Christmas Seal * Charity Stamp Society, c2013. (Book)
    Location: APRL CD Denune

    It is available for loan to APS members, or you can purchase an updated edition from the CS&CSS.
