BOHEMIA & MORAVIA - A COLLECTOR'S NOTEBOOK (B.63)
Handbook (1st edition) covering a selection of aspects of the postal history of Bohemia & Moravia in WWII under German occupation. The chapters on "Postal Rates" and on "Post Office listing" spring to mind as being alone worth the cost of the book. This 1st edition contains marginally less detail in the camp and KLV section, and a few snippets in other sections, but is only 2 pages shorter than the 2nd edition and is half the price! Just one copy left, to clear.

POSTGEBUHREN (POSTAL RATES) (B.330)
Michel catalogue, first edition of 2001, comprehensive listing of postal rates in easy-to-follow tables, from German States through to 1993 West Germany and DDR. There exist a couple of more recent editions with minor corrections and additions, but all the essentials are in this first edition, much cheaper than buying new. Very useful for checking if a cover has the correct franking (slight under- or over- franking are not well regarded in exhibits) and for the fascinating 1923 Infla period with its rapidly escalating rates. 285 pages.
