India Used in Burma by Jal Cooper


The standard and superb handbook on the subject by the master Indian philatelist. While the book INDIA USED ABROAD does cover Burma as well, this book covers the subject in greater depth. The book begins with a short history of the country. This is followed up by early postal history dating back to the First Burmese War in 1824. Then the various obliterators used to cancel stamps are discussed (Type 1, 7, 9, 32, experimental, etc). Followed by town, ship, and railway postmarks and India used in Andaman Islands. Finally a list of all Burmese Post Offices as on 1 Apr 1937 is given. Lots of illustrations makes it easy to understand. Softbound in good condition, published 1950. Free shipping within India.
