The famous stamp collector Josiah Lilly said that there were 100,000 postage stamps he wanted for his collection and he succeeded in acquiring 77,000. My considerably easier target is 35,000 of the more common stamps from 1840-1940 contained in the Scott Blue International Album Volume 1. This blog will record my progress, provide general information about Classic era philately and hopefully encourage other "Blue" collectors.

Yvert & Tellier Catalogs
I received today an email from Regency Superior who, in addition to handling Stanley Gibbons, is now a source for Y&T catalogs in the US. Among the items they have for sale is a 2010 version of Y&T's Classiques du Monde (1840-1940) catalog. I was only aware of the 2005 edition. But more surprisingly, Y&T has a two volume set covering the world from 1941 to 1960. As far as I know, they are the only publisher to offer such a catalog. For those who collect a decade or two beyond 1940, this could be useful.
