India & States

I'm often asked whether there is a revenue catalogue for Indian Princely States (since these States are not included in our Commonwealth catalogue). The only book that was produced was "The Court Fee and Revenue Stamps of the Princely States of India" by Koeppel & Manners, in three volumes including Appendix, published between 1984 and 1989. Excellent hardbound books, with historical background on the States as well as the stamp listing (illus in black/white). Sadly these books were snapped up on publication and has remained out of print since. Regrettably Adolph Koeppel is no longer alive - so at the moment it's a question of seeking a 2nd-hand copy on the internet. We have quite a lot of information about these stamps so maybe we can do a new edition in a few years - but there are some more advanced projects to complete first over the next couple of years. Still, keep checking - and if you are a collector who can help with scans, please get in touch!
