  4. Oldest Venezuelan Catalogue of Venezuela Stamps

Taking advantage of the impulse of having found an older catalogue than the one of German origin, I am going to share one that I had somewhere in my pocket.

It is not the oldest, but since I have shared an old catalogue of French origin and another of German origin, it will be sharing all the old catalogues of Venezuelan stamps that I find around.

In this case, it is a very very complete catalogue, published by The Scott Stamp and Coin Co., Limited, in 1890, and was authored by Henry Collin and Henry Calman. Its name is:

A Catalogue for Advanced Collectors
of Postage Stamps, Stamped Envelopes and Wrappers

It shows our stamps up to the official stamps of 1899 and many local stamps of La Guayra-St., Thomas.

It also shows, at the end, a section for the identification of some fakes.

Finally, it ends up showing a series of stamps that they did not know, but left as a reference. They assumed, cautiously, that they’re just fake or fantasy.
