Stanley Gibbons discontinues its services...
Don't panic because of the title, Stanley Gibbons, of course, will continue to bring out its catalogues. From now on, the English publishing and trading company will only do things in a slightly different way.
What SG wants to end is the endless expansion of the Commonwealth Catalogue. So far, the collecting area "England and the Commonwealth" was compressed in one catalogue comprising three large volumes. From a "physical" point of view already, this had got to come to an end. That is why, from now on, the Commonwealth Catalogue will describe all issues between 1840 and 1952, the year when King George VI died, and provide them with a notation. For everything which came out later, one should now consult the One Country Catalogue series, which, as the name indicates, will deal with one country per volume. The first parts of this series, which will be set up as a loose-leaf system, have now been released, namely those of Australia and the Falklands.
