CHINA

The philately of China begins in 1878 when the famous "Large Dragons" stamps were issued. These were followed in 1885 by definitive stamps known as "Small Dragons". Nine years later China ended the 19th Century with a long series honoring the 60th Birthday of the Empress Dowager. The early issues are very popular with collectors and specialists as are the modern stamps of the People's Republic of China. The number of Chinese collectors has increased exponentially and so have the prices of Chinese stamps.

JAPAN: A Specialized Listing of the Japanese Occupation of CHINA
Country: JAPAN
Condition: JAPAN: A Specialized Listing of the Japanese Occupation of CHINA
Description: A Special Item FROM THE ANTIQUARIAN & MODERNARIAN OF POSTAL HISTORY & PHILATELY Jack G. Nielsen, Ralph A. Weil, A Specialized Listing of the Japanese Occupation Stamps of China, 1995 46pp. in English The two authors, both advanced collectors of Japanese Occupation stamps of China, undertook this research study after identifying that the three specialized catalogs on the subject differed substantially in their listings of these stamps. The three catalogs are the Colour-illustrated Stamp Catalogue of China, commonly referred to as 'Chan' after its editor Chan Shu-hou;Ma's Illustrated Catalogue of the Stamps of China, commonly referred to as 'MA'; and the Japanese Stamp Specialized Catalog (JSCA). The stamps are listed in Chan catalog order with the corresponding catalog numbers for not only the MA and JSCA catalogs where listed, but also for the Scott and Stanley Gibbons catalogs. Therefore, the tables in this monograph not only provide information on the disparities in the listings amongst the five catalogs, but also provide a concordance between their catalog numbers. The contents include Japanese Ocupation stamps used in provinces in North China, Inner Mongolia, Central China, and South China. NO ILLUSTRATIONS *** NOT TO BE MISSED!!!
