United Kingdom Pre-Decimal Pictorial Stamp Booklets
from Robert Murray Stamp Shop, Edinburgh
These are attractive items, whether for booklet collectors or for thematic ("topical") collectors.
They were issued by the British Post Office between 1968 and 1970. The front covers showed ships, houses, birds, and explorers.

We normally have the full range in stock. Our prices are for fine and complete condition, with the perforations "as they come". If you specifically need to have above-average perforations, please contact us to check availability and price.
Where two of the same title are listed with different dates, the only difference is the date on the back covers.
 

NOTICE (as as 16 May 2008); A number of these are presently out of stock. We expect to update our stocks reasonably soon (next few weeks ?) but may not be complete, and there may be some price changes. This note will be removed at that time.
