    Philatelic Exhibition Labels by James Drummond, 894(!) pages, $129.00. Loose-leaf, 3-holed punched. All color images.

    Comes now, James Drummond who has compiled and cataloged a number of philatelic sidelines. Clearly, vast amounts of effort and research went into all of his books. Perhaps his most popular are the three volumes and supplement, Philatelic Miscellany – not to be confused with McDonald’s excellent American Philatelic Miscellany. I do not have this series but hope to acquire it soon. All of his works may be purchased from www.ericjackson.com the place for revenue and ‘miscellany’ collectors. The pages load a tad slow for me but the website itself is full of goodies and easily navigated.

    This book is, essentially, a catalog. All the images are in color and text is generally limited to descriptions and facts about the material – values, printings, dates, varieties, sizes. Again, the research required to obtain all of this information leaves me in awe. Philatelic Exhibition Labels will certainly appeal to specialists but is not a storybook. If the field is of interest to you the book is obviously a ‘must-have.’ Lots of eye candy!

    There seems to be a renewal of interest in philatelic sidelines, cinderellas and the like. This tome should be well-received.

    As noted, this is V.1. V.2 – M-Z will be published later; hopefully soon! Ergo, the full ticket will run around $260.00. Note also, the pages are unbound. That suits me fine. I have several books towards this size in nice matching binders I bought from Wal-Mart for $7.00 each.

    Let me place blame for this brief review squarely where it belongs - <ANGLOBOB> and <DONSELLOS>! They are the rascals who encouraged my interest in cinderellas and poster stamps generally and philatelic exhibition material specifically!
