An old – and well used! – copy of Backman & Forrester’s sought-after and out-of-print “The Postage Stamps of the Smaller Channel Islands” catalogue, comprising 108 pages and published in 1981.
In the case of Herm and Jethou, this therefore includes all the issues ever produced by those islands, which ceased at the point of Guernsey’s postal independence in 1969. (In contrast, some issues bearing the names of Brecqhou and Lihou have continued to appear in more recent years.)
The prices of the stamps given in the catalogue are, of course, long out of date, but this book continues to provide an interesting and comprehensive insight into the history of these islands’ postage stamps.
Due to the size and weight of this item, please be aware that it carries a shipping supplement of £1.50 within the UK and £3 internationally compared to our normal rates.
