FEATURES OF THE SIXTH EDITION: 25 years after the first edition of this catalogue was published in 1988, and seven
years after the fifth edition, this new catalogue brings in a new dimension, since we are now into the first inter-active
edition, where readers are referred to websites and online guides for even deeper knowledge!
The obvious difference between this edition and the previous one is the major work
that has been done by not only adding virtually every recorded variety, but also by illustrating them all with enlarged details!
Many sections have been entirely re-written including the FID 1946 and 1948 Maps issues, which are covered in full detail.
The other major change is in the Miscellaneous chapter, which deals with every aspect of Falkland Islands
philately not covered elsewhere in the catalogue. This chapter has grown from 50 to 90 pages and virtually every section in
this chapter has been re-written and expanded, and there are 10 entirely new sections as well including: Avis de Réception
(Return Receipts), Consular Handstamps, Crash & Damaged-in-Transit Mail, OHMS Mail, Operation Tabarin 1944-45, Post Office
Notices, Gazettes & Shipping Time Tables, Postage Due Mail, Postal Forms & Receipts, and QSL-Cards.
The number of pages in the catalogue is unchanged, and this
has been possible by compressing the listing of stamps issued after 1985, but this listing is still complete and every issue
has one stamp illustrated.
Naturally everything else in the catalogue is entirely updated as well, including
prices and data. An unbelievable amount of new information throughout the entire catalogue has also been added. There is probably
not one single page which hasn't been changed compared to the fifth edition, and many pages have been completely re-written!
