LES SEMEUSES (B.62)
"Essai sur les Semeuses" by Louis Barrier. The Sower stamps were the longest running design of middle period France, and offer a wealth of material for the technically minded collector - types, shades, papers, perfs, booklets, specimens, precancels, postal forgeries etc. This detailed study, published 1951 by the Bulletin Philatélique du Midi in Montpellier, was the classic work on the subject, 231 pages, paper bound, and author signed (one of only 15 signed examples).
