The book was prepared on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the first joint stamp issue of the United States and Canada. The stamps, issued on June 26, 1959, coincided with the Opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway by Queen Elizabeth II and President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The planning and production of the stamps to commemorate the event took almost as long as the construction of the Seaway itself with proposals coming forward in 1954 in the US and in 1956 in Canada.

The author has looked at all the intricate negotiations needed to meet the requirements of a joint issue and how both Post Offices designed and produced the stamps, dealt with the new realities of first day of issue material and, for the Canadian Post Office, the rarity created by printing a few sheets of the stamps with the lettering inverted.

New LOW Price for softcover: $10 plus shipping!

PENDING REPRINT

The Large Queen Stamps of Canada and their Use, by the Duckworths has been updated and re-issued after being out of print for many years. The 2nd edition now includes new colour illustrations and updated information on the stamps. The full period of printings and use of the Large Queen stamps from 1868 onward is covered - the 5 cents value is now included, and coverage of the 12 1/2 and 15 cents is now extended beyond 1872. Dated collections of each value are shown to illustrate the progression of printings. The chapters on postal history are maintained from the first edition.

The Postage Stamps of Canada in the Small Queen Era, 1870-1897 is a new book which builds on earlier works by John Hillson and adds research on the printing plates by Ted Nixon. It covers proofs and stamps of the Small Queen issue, plus the Widow Weeds and the 1891 essays by the Canada Bank Note Engraving and Printing Co. It presents colour illustrations of the full range of shades of each value, and the prominent re-entries on each value. In addition it traces the printing characteristics through the three distinct periods involving Ottawa and Montreal locations. Finally it identifies and illustrates the rates and uses of each value.

Only 200 copies of each book have been printed.
