INDIA (including Convention and Feudatory States)

The most comprehensive and up-to-date catalogue of India and States on the market
and considerably expanded since the publication of the previous edition in 2004.
• New, handy page size.
• More color illustrations, particularly in the Feudatory States.
• Additional priced listings of Indian stamps used in Bahrain, British East Africa, Iran, Iraq, Malaya (Straits Settlements) and Zanzibar.
• Numerous additions throughout the volume, in the form of helpful notes and new varieties
– several watermark varieties are listed for the first time.
• A comprehensive design index for Indian stamps, 1947- date makes stamp identification easy.
• Prices have been carefully revised and updated in line with today’s very active international stamp market. In common with other rapidly developing economies, the demand for Indian stamps, particularly the pre-independence issues, has grown considerably in India itself over the last few years, with the result that prices have risen dramatically. In India itself, many earlier stamps have been marked up by 50 per cent, or more, since the previous edition and the in-demand 10 rupee Gandhi stamp of 1948 has gone up mint from £45 to £160! Indian States are also growing in popularity, with the 1931 Investiture set of Jaipur up from £170/£950 (mint/used) in 2004 to £250/£1400 today. Similar price changes will be found throughout.
• If you collect the stamps of India, this is a catalogue you cannot do without.

The Stanley Gibbons India catalogue lists and prices the stamps of India from the earliest issues of Sind Province (1852) and the East India Company (1854-64) up to the end of 2008, to the level of detail familiar to users of the Part 1 British Commonwealth listings.

The catalogue includes details of Indian stamps used abroad, with fully priced listings in several cases, also the stamps of Indian Expeditionary and Custodian forces overseas and the issues of the Indian Convention and Feudatory states.

Major plate flaws, watermark varieties, shades, official stamps and booklets are all listed.

Details of issues up to 1970 have been extracted from Stanley Gibbons 2010 Commonwealth and British Empire Stamp Catalogue. Later issues have been revised and updated specially for the publication.

Prices extensively revised with many significant increases since the 2nd edition.
