“Plating Papua Part 1 – The Lithographs SG 47 to 83”
Highly technical study of 1907-11 bicolour Lakatois with all of the 30 plate positions of each value illustrated both large & small Papua types with their individual characteristics identified & described.
A must-have for the student of Papua philately.
Most authors would consider publishing a book such as “Plating Papua Part I” as a monumental achievement and crawl away to recover – and perhaps take up a new hobby.
Author Dr. Michael D. Ryan has, however, set himself a Herculean task, the first part of which is massive in its detail and stuffed with splendid colour illustrations of Lakatois in this first “magnum opus” of a series optimistically predicted by that “Part I” in the title.
