    "Of my total outlay for stamps I use

    an average seven percent for the pur-

    chase of philatelic literature - a quota which contains more profit than

    one would imagine"

    The most favourab le response t o my 'Nepal P h i l a t e l i c B ib l i og raphy ' encouraged me t o devote a s i m i l a r book le t t o t h a t o the r f a s c i n a t i n g Himalayan land, T i b e t .

A lso inc luded i s a chapter on i n k and wax seals , a s i d e l i n e t h a t has always been most popular w i t h p h i l a t e l i s t s .

    The present volume l i s t s over 500 books, a r t i c l e s and catalogues. pub l i shed throughout the wor ld ( i n no less than ten d i f f e r e n t l an - guages ! ) . A c r i t i c a l b i b l i o g r a p h y o f t h i s order should n o t o n l y be regarded as a complete record o f the e x i s t i n g l i t e r a t u r e , b u t i t should a l s o he lp i n b r i n g i n g c o l l e c t o r s and students i n t o c l o s e r con tac t w i t h the h i s t o r i e s o f p h i l a t e l i c and numismatic research from the ve ry beginning through t o the present days.

    I s i n c e r e l y wish t o thank the f o l l o w i n g p h i l a t e l i s t s who have sup- p l i e d me w i t h numerous a r t i c l e s and/or u s e f u l b i b l i o g r a p h i c i n f o r - mat ion: Derek H.
