Published in colour for the first time, this catalogue covers the stamps of the French Colonies, Andorra and Monaco as well as France itself. Numerous editorial amendments have been made, most notably to the ‘Sower’ definitives of France, where the various ‘Types’ are now illustrated and listed, while new notes are provided on the methods used to send mail in and out of Paris during the siege of 1870-71. Details of machine labels have been expanded for France and Spanish Andorra and the ‘Vichy’ colonial issues are now individually listed and priced for the first time. Many thousands of changes have been made, particularly early issues of the French colonies & modern France & territories.
